Hello my DS has had a runny nose for about 3/4 months now. No other symptoms. I'm not sure whether to ring the doctors, I don't wanna waste their time with everything that's going on at the moment but also worried he might need antibiotics for it. Anyone else experienced this x

How old is he? Unless it's bright green/orange, then he's not likely to need antibiotics.
Far more likely to be an allergy or intolerance such as dairy or dust/animals.

It's bright green? He's 16 months

Ring the doctors. We had two occasions with my daughter where we thought her symptoms were just a persistent cold - the first time it turned out to be bronchiolitis and the second, tonsillitis.

Yes COVID is a thing but the health service is still there for us as needed x

I agree with newmum- give them a ring. Bright green means an infection, and if it's been 3 or 4 months, it needs clearing up now.
