Chronic runny nose. Suggestions

Hi, I have a chronic runny nose (thin,watery--not thick) year round. It's long term and I suspect it from living in a small apartment with a parrot and a macaw. I can't take antihistamines because they make me extremely jittery. Normally I deal with the problem by ALWAYS having tissue with me to control the running. The problem is this: I'm a beekeeper and when I'm working the hives (which can be several hours at a time) I cannot use tissue through the bee veil. It's horribly embarrassing when other people are around. Any advice/help would be much appreciated!!
