My sisters and I used to laugh at my aunt that would walk around her house with a tissue hanging out of her nose because of a runny nose. Well... karma really is a bitch!
Last spring, I had a runny nose. Ok, I thought, spring allergies even though I've never had that before. Then summer, fall and now winter and still I have a runny nose. I don't know what it is, but it's a pain in the ass and I soooo understand now why my aunt would run around with a tissue up her nose.
I don't have headaches, no cough, nothing but a clear runny nose (yeah, I know - gross, right?).
I've tried Claritin D and it did NOTHING. So, what's your favorite OTC drug to dry up a runny nose???
Funny story: I was on duty and driving around harassing the citizens of my town (that's how they see it anyways) and I looked over and there was a woman, mid-30s, all made up and with beautifully coiffed hair, with a tissue stuck up each nostril, driving down the road. I was...well...dumbstruck. Hahaha!!

Zyrtec, or the generic alternative if it's allergies. Antihistamines, in general should work and you may just have to search for one that works. However, there are non-allergic causes. I went searching and found this pretty informative article from the Mayo Clinic. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/non...initis/DS00809

I have five dogs and six cats and a few small pets including two teenagers and I can tell if I'm ONE day late sweeping and mopping the entire house. As long as I sweep daily and mop as often as possible I don't need to keep a kleenex in my pocket, let alone my nose!
