How Long Should A Runny Nose Run

No Comments »

runny noseA few hours, a day, perhaps a week or two or even a month, how about six months or heaven forbid, continuously?

These are the questions that need answering in our otherwise busy and hectic lives.

There was a time in the not so distant past, when I worked in the European ski fields and having a runny nose was considered de rigueur, almost a part of your uniform. The standing joke was always ‘April’ whenever anybody asked when your runny nose was going to stop running! (April signified the end of winter in Europe and nearly the end of the ski season and a time when things began warming up).

But things have moved on since then and I no longer live in Europe let alone ski 8 hours a day, 6 days a week, for 5 months of the year YET the runny nose remains. I live in hot sunny Australia and the ‘April’ answer to the standing joke no longer cuts it!

Why, I ask?

Why won’t my nose stop running? I don’t have a cold, I don’t feel sick or poorly, no headache, the air is warm, yet every morning I awake to a nose full of nasal mucus and end the day with a nose full of dried nasal mucus!


Besides the obvious answer.., it’s flipping annoying and not very pleasant.

Come on folks, I’m searching here… Anyone with any ideas.., feel free to share them?
