Weird one sided head problems!

So I noticed yesterday and today that I had a runny nose but only on the right side of my face (so just one nostril), then today my right eye keeps streaming and there is a small swelling under my ear on that side too.

Do I have a one sided cold?! confused

Sounds like things are getting blocked on one side only. The small swelling under your ear is probably a lymph gland which can swell during infections.

Try some steam inhalations. Sometimes, only one side of your sinuses will block, so you get a one sided headache and blocked nose.
