dry eyes and sinus
I feel discomfort in my left eye due to dryness (i think), it also gets swollen from time to time. My left nostril is always blocked. Is there link between the two? I suffer from hayfever.

Dear Pete

There is a close relationship between the eye and the nostil. I suggest you have an ENT examination to establish a cause as this could range from allergies and hayfever to sinusitis and conditions that dry the eye.
