Does anyone read "doctor" ? Can you translate this for me? :)

DS1 was diagnosed with seasonal allergies, so I'm assuming that the following sentence in his chart refers to this.  But I'd like to know what it says in layman's terms:

Nares with boggy turbinates purulent rhinorrhea.

The notes were all typed, so this is an exact duplicate...

Thanks!

The only thing I can translate out of that is rhinorrhea, which means nasal discharge.

Nostril and turbinates (small boney like structures in the airway) are swollen with a pus like drainage

"Nares" refers toi the nostrils.  Sometimes you can have only one "nare" that has the symptoms and sometimes both are involved. "Boggy" means filled with fluid and/or swollen. Turbinates refers to the small curved bone that extends horizontally along the lateral wall of the nasal passage, so what he is stating there is that these turbinates are fluid filled and/or swollen. Puralent rhinorrhea means discharge suggestive of either chronic allergy or sinus infection.
