I have runny nose what is the fastest way to get rid of it?
my nose is so runny and i used a hole roll of toilet paper. what can i do for it to go away the fastest, is it safe to use flonase until it goes away for this runny nose?

il più felice bumble l'ape
? ... :/

Just wait?

dog poop now
you can snort some cyanide. it won't be runny....ever again......

using a hole of the toilet paper is not going to help

just keep standing at one place , the 'running' nose will run off by itself


this is gonna sound really strange, but sticking tissues 'up there' will help heaps

lie in bed or sleep sleep sleep. don't go on computers, outside and stay inside..eat healthy food although they maybe be discusting but thats the only thing you can do and take pandol if you must

Depends why it's running. Is it dusty in your house? Vacuum. Do you have a cold? Get some sleep and chicken soup. Did your boyfriend break up with you? Drink some wine.

I have the same problem sometimes too. You could get this special cream from the chemist's which dries up the area round the nose. It works really well! I don't know what it's called though, sorry!

well it depends where its going and what its up to

if it has simply been to much of a concern seeing it run around then id suggest calling the police and telling them you smell something fishy

Fly in the Ointment
Claritin (loratidine) or Zyrtec work great.

boil water on ur stove wait until it starts steaming the get a towel put on head then put ur face about 1 ft above it

Hi there,

Great question. I have allergies and completely understand your runny nose predicament. Being a serial hayfever victim also makes me a self proclaimed expert on runny noses.

I find the best thing is a decongestant spray, for some reason I find them the most effective. You can buy generic ones from the pharmacy for as little as $5. They work on the basis of evaporating the water from your sinuses. As a result, your nose will stop dripping. Just make sure you don't take them for longer than a week straight, because it stops the bad gunk from flowing out of your sinuses, which can potentially lead to a sinus infection needing antibiotic treatment.

There are also tonnes of decongestant tablets available at the pharmacy. These work on the same premise as the nasal sprays. From my own experience, these work very well too, but I prefer the sprays. Best thing about the sprays and tablets is that they are usually a once a day treatment. Too easy!

Cold and flu tablets, containing pseudoephidrine or phenylepherine also remove the water from the sinuses, stopping those annoying nose drips. You need to take these ever 6 to 8 hours though, and cannot take other painkillers in conjunction unfortunately.

If you cannot get to the pharmacy, try some old fashioned euycalyptus and pepermint oil in hot water. Use a basin, bucket or anything you have. Put a towel over your head and lean over the bucket. Clears out the sinuses like a charm. I even splash a little eucalyptus oil around the shower or bath to have the same effect.

The sinus irrigations are great. they are safe to use with a runny nose and i find them great for a stuffy sinus. They are inexpensive and can be used as much as you like. If allergies are contributing to your runny nose it may help to rinse out any of the allergens.

On the topic of allergies, those once a day allergy tablets and sprays from the pharmacy are fantastic. They work differently to the decongestants because they contain corticosteroids - or anti-inflammatories which mitigate the inflammation causing the allergies. These are generally a little more expensive than the decongestant tablets, available at your pharmacy.

I should also stress that you need to consider the cause of your runny nose. If it is a cold you can manage it with the products mentioned above. All of them will work but your pharmacist could advise you of the best. Just make sure you dont stay on them for longer than a week as this will predispose you to sinus infections, like i mentioned before.

other causes such as allergies may require long term management. allergies can arise at any time in your life, so just because you have never had them in the past, doesn't mean you will never develop them. Once a day tablets or sprays may be needed, so consult your pharmacist.

If it goes on for longer than a week, time to consult your GP.

Hope that helps!!

i use 2 never use nasel spray, but 1 time i did and it was like heaven. i'd say use nasel spray. now i always do and my nose is never runny. lol. good luck
