Used to use medised on dc. Dd (16) has a streaming cold, any suggestions for similar treatment to dry it up.

Night nurse is ok from age 12

In my experience only time helps and the streaming stage only lasts a day or two.

Otrivine nasal spray is brilliant for when your sinuses are horribly blocked but the streaming has stopped.

Sudafed is ok from 12 I think.

Sudafed spray is good for blocked noses too

An antihistamine takes the edge off. Also optrivine is a godsend with a cold. Always have it in my cupboard.
