    2010 has started with a running nose, it is ridiculously continual in nature. I am sneezing and sneezing and gone through a huge toilet roll blowing my nose.

    If i have a blocked nose i take some syrup that unblocks it but as i have the reverse problem, how do i block my nose?

    Any suggestion?

    Roll yourself up a nasal tampon made from tissue and just plug your nose up. Nothing will stop it running. Change often. :)

    Don't block your nose. Your body is trying to get rid of the guck, keep blowing! (your nose)

    My advice is to let it run. When it doesn't run you get congested and will have painful sinus problems. Far better to let it run it's course and don't take anything to dry it up IMHO.

    I've had similar cold symptoms for about a week now which have dried up at times causing bad sinus pain. Today I started taking a tablet from the Farmacia which have cleared my sinuses immediately but I'm back to the streaming nose which I can put up with.

    Zyrtec or Claratyne (sold under the brand name Claratin in the US)

    I don't know but if you find out, let me know. I don't think my nose has stopped running since my junior year in high school.

    Very attractive.

    The reason you sneeze is to get the germs out of your body. Yes, if other people are right there, it gets onto/into their bodies, but that's why your mom told you to cover your face when you sneeze :)

    If you have a runny nose that's just too much to handle take a decongestant. Pseudoephedrine works wonders, but it's hard to come by these days. Penylephrine works too, but for some people (including me) it causes horrendous jitters.

    I don't wanna go out to the chemist (even if its across the street), can i not just eat something that might be in my cupboards? Perhaps inhale incense? Hold my head upside down and do spins?, anything...

    use a neti pot to clean out your sinuses each day. once or twice a day usually helps. it feels weird doing it the first few times, but believe me, especially when you're sneezing a lot, the neti pot works wonders. any drug store should carry them.

    Chicken soup.

    Take some Benadryl or Dayquil. It will relieve your symptoms. You are not a dog, you are not supposed to have a wet nose.
