Hi welcome to Health care magic forum,

Running nose in a 8 month baby indicate allergic rhintis or a simple viral infection of upper respiratory tract. Sometimes teething may cause irritation of teeth and baby put anything in her mouth and cause infection or it could be a coincidence .

So avoid your baby exposing to air air conditioner and keep her little warm . Keep any dirty cloths or material out of her reach.
