Thanks for your query.
Runny nose means rhinorrhoea and it can be basically due to allergic cause and non allergic cause.
To understand better please write back with answers to few queries:-
-Is the runny nose continuous?
-Does it occur when exposed to any allergy causing food, to smoke,dust etc?
-Are you on any medicines for allergy or even blood pressure,prostate?
-Is there any structural abnormality like deviated nasal septum?
-Do you have a history of seasonal rhinitis?
Please write back and I shall do my best to help you.
Awaiting your reply.
Take care.
