How to Get Rid of a Runny Nose

HOW TO STOP A RUNNY NOSE

Most people wish getting rid of their runny nose was as easy as turning a magical mucus faucet “off.”

 

While it’s not exactly that easy, there are still simple things you can do to feel better, like:

  • Periodically blow your nose or sniff and swallow your mucus
  • A cooling vaporizer, hot steam inhalation, or flushing your nose out with a salt-water solution may help
  • Drinking lots of fluids will help thin your dried mucus

 

It is also possible that your runny nose is the result of allergies. Please refer to our Allergy section for more information on how to control allergy symptoms
