Runny nose: Over the counter -- if allergy, antihistamines (zyrtec, allegra) may help if not allergy, the older antihistamines like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or chlortrimeton have a side effect causing dryness which may work in your favor rx - meds - nasal steroids for allergy or inflammation, Atrovent Nasal Spray drys out nose very well from most any cause.

It may be allergies: Try to determine if there is a known trigger causing your runny nose. Keeping a journal might be helpful with this. Also try an over the counter antihistamine for a week and see if you notice an improvement. Ultimately you may need to see an ENT for further evaluation and you might even be a candidate for allergy testing.

?Nonallergic rhiniti: Nonallergic rhinitis could be the diagnosis. Treatment is similar to allergic rhinitis. Topical intranasal glucocorticoids and topical inhaled antihistamines can help. Atrovent (ipratropium) may also help if it is nonallergic rhinitis. If unimproved improved, allergy testing may help guide treatment.

Nasal Congestion: Neti pots can reduce nasal congestion. Mix ¼ tsp salt w 1 cup lukewarm water. More salt can also be used. Place solution in neti pot. Tilt head ; pour solution into 1 nostril. Blow nose lightly ; spit out any liquid that drains into throat. Repeat on other side. This can be done in the evening before you go to bed ; again in the morning.

Allergic? Viral? etc: Nose or throat symptoms can be from cold viruses, strep throat, allergies, etc... It can be hard to tell what the cause is. If symptoms only last 1-2 days, it is more likely allergies or irritation. If nose or eyes are itching, maybe it is allergies. If there's more coughing, maybe viral. Many doctors have 5-minute tests for strep throat, so a primary care Dr. can diagnose strep and start therapy.
