Here are some things I’ve found that stop me from suffering from a runny nose:
- Rinse your nose out with warm salty water. Don’t use unsalted water because, contrary to what you’d expect, it stings!
- Stop using tissue. The little fibres in it will just irritate your nostrils more. Use water.
- Wax your nostrils. You can get kits to do this and it doesn’t hurt as much as you would think.
- Clean the wax out of your ears. Everything connected inside your body: ears, nose, throat and other exits too. Keep them all clean.
- Drink plenty of water.
But if none of this works and it all gets too much, take a paracetamol and get an early night.
