Have cold and runny nose. Any effective medicine or nasal spray?

I cant do this anymore.UGH. Fourteen years old and my nose keeps dripping white water. I had a cold for a couple weeks and its pretty much gone now. But whenever I dont wipe my nose it starts dripping. IT IS SO ANNOYING. Should I tell my dad? Maybe go to the doctor? Is there some nasal spray? After reading little advice things like this I m starting to freak out. I dont want my nose to drip when I bend over. If I m sitting down and bend my head down and cough a little it starts dripping. Its never done this before. Help.

Hello and welcome,

Thanks for your query.

I will need a little more information to be able to help you.

Like at first, do you have any other symptoms?

Any phlegm/sputum being produced, either with or without any cough? Is it white or transparent (most probably no infection) or green, yellow or blood stained (possibility of an infection)?Any fever? Or just a feverish feeling?

Based on the description you are giving me, I suspect a dust allergy. Which is quite common.

Are you constantly exposed to dust or have you noticed these symptoms to crop up when you are exposed to dust?

If this is the case, some mild anti-histamines will help you. But then again, taking medications often is not considered to be healthy. What would be best, is to always carry a hand napkin with you, or even the use of a face mask, to protect you from dust when you visit areas with a lot of dust.

Contemplate the possibility and discuss this with your father and/or your family doctor.

I hope I have succeeded in answering your questions, you could write back to us anytime for further clarifications.

Best wishes.
