Suggest treatment for runny nose

I am having running nose, just water is flowing out of my nose since four days. First I tried a dosage of ceroxim 500 and Etosfe which were at home in my medical kit which was prescribed by a Doctor for healing of an injury. The first one being antibiotic next one is containing paracetamol for immediate remedy. As I had to go out on some work I asked the medical stores to give me some remedial medicine for my running nose. He gave Cheston cold tablets. even after consuming it for two days two tablets daily I am not getting relief from running nose. What is the best medicine for cold

Hello,
Welcome to HCM
Runny nose is a very common symptom of many underlying diseases.Most commonly due to cold weather,viral infection or allergies.
Usually no treatment is required for this.It will subside on its own.
Since its a viral infection,antibiotics are not of much help.I would suggest you to take
1.Home remedies llike-steam inhalations-4 to 5 times a day.
2.Keep your face insulated when you go out in cold weather.
3.If you are allergic to any substances,You might have to see an allergist and get a prescription for an allergy medication.
4.You can also try saline nasal sprays and vasoconstrictor nasal sprays.
5.Antihistamines-they won't cure a runny nose, no matter what the cause, they can provide some temporary relief.
Thank you.
