Treatment of nasal drip vary depending on the cause and can include topical nasal sprays and oral medication. Allergic rhinitis often responds to antihistamines, topical or oral steroids, saline irrigations, and immunotherapy. Lifestyle modifications and allergen avoidance also plays a major role. Atrovent (ipratropium bromide) nasal spray is often an effective way to treat vasomotor or non-allergic rhinitis.
Alternatives to medical treatment include in-office procedures such as cryoablation or radio frequency ablation of the vidian nerve, or surgical procedures such as turbinate reduction.
