Allergies?: Allergies can cause drooling and a runny nose. Be sure there are no fragrances or aerosols being used in her environment (all of which exacerbate or cause allergies). Go with her to her next appt, if okay with parents, and see what the doc says about this. No scented soaps, detergents, candles and no fabric softeners. This goes for the people that hug her too!
