In brief: No

Runny nose is almost always a sign of inflammation of the nasal mucosa, due to allergies, infections or irritants such as smoke.
Runny nose most commonly indicates that the person has a condition affecting his/her nose, but is not specific by itself.

In brief: Not at all-actually

An allergy is the sign of a strong immune system. Your body is actualy over-reacting to a harmless substance.
