Watery eyes: Sounds like you have a viral illness. Take an over-the-counter decongestant and see if this helps. A saline nasal spray is also helpful. Drink plenty of fluids and get some rest. If you are still having problems after 7 days, call your primary doctor.

Is it possible to get rid of runny nose and watery eyes fast?

Not so fast...: Runny nose is often caused by the tears from the watery eyes draining into it. The cause of the watery eyes has to be treated. If it is due to allergies, then an allergy eye drop is the best treatment. If you have dry eyes, they can cause reflex tearing. An artificial tear can heal the eye surface, decreasing tearing. A doctor can help find the cause.
