Identify the trigger: There are many causes of runny nose including infections and allergies. If the trigger can be identified, then it may be possible to remove or avoid the trigger. Otherwise, medications may be necessary. An allergist can review the symptoms and exposures and if necessary pursue testing to find the cause and find relief!

Depends.: First you need to find out what is causing it. If it is from an allergic condition as in hay fever, antihistamine may help. If this is a persistent and bothersome issue, see an allergist.

Depends: It really depends on the cause of your runny nose. If you have a cold, it is best to just be patient. If the symptoms are due to allergy, available treatments include oral antihistamines, prescription nasal sprays, and allergy shots.

Depends on the cause: The easiest way to dry up a runny nose is with over-the-counter antihistamines (zyrtec (cetirizine) or allegra). However, just treating the runny nose does not help you with identifying the cause of the symptoms.
