Why liquid is comming from the nose when we suffer from common cold?

Asked by Udit Lilhare | 12th Apr, 2013, 04:07: PM

Expert Answer:

Underneath the glands that secrete mucus, there are huge amounts of tiny blood vessels in our nose. In cold weather, these blood vessels dilate or grow larger and have more blood supply, which in part protects our nose from the cold and begins to produce greater amounts of mucus and liquid.
