Runaway running: Nose for how long? A cold usually lasts 7-10 days, but can last as long as 14 days. If your nose has been runny for longer, then could be sinus infection, allergies or non-allergic runny nose. Talk with your doc about the right problem and the right treatment for you. Take care.

Can also be associated with taking various meds or due to hormonal conditions. Worthwhile checking this out with an allergy specialist.

Runny Nose: So many causes: infections, allergies, medications, foods, hormones, aging, cold air, etc... If there is a pattern, you might be able to discuss this with your doctor and find a solution or at least get to the right specialist to help stop your runny nose.

Probably allergies: Though there are other causes. Try zyrtec Allegra (fexofenadine) or claritin( generics are fine; read the labels). But then see an allergist.

Figure cause: Is your runny nose due to allergies? If so allergy treatment can help quite a bit. Is it due to infection? If so antibiotics can help. Is it due to non allergic rhinitis? If so Atrovent Nasal Spray can dry your nose. You need a good ENT exam to assess the cause and determine treatment.

Rhinorrhea: Burning in the nose and a runny nose can both be caused by inflammation in the nose. This is usually from a type of infection, commonly viral. It usually stops on its own. If it is persistent, you can try saline nasal spray. If that does not work, i would see an ENT who can prescribe something that should be able to help you. Feel better!

Allergies?: Sometimes you are exposed to an allergen that causes your nose to produce clear thin secretions in excess. I would try OTC Claritin (loratadine) for 2 weeks to see if it helps. If that doesn't help you should see your doctor. Some people have "vasomotor" rhinitis which can be treated with a prescription nose spray.

After head trauma clear liquid from the nose can sometimes be leaking cerebral spinal fluid. Just FYI. It's extremely uncommon, but needs to be considered if head trauma or chronic use of nasal inhalants like cocaine are part of the history. But I agree with Dr. Arnoult, that's not the common thing, allergies are very common.
