Constant runny nose.

Pretty much that, DS has had a runny nose for weeks it's clear, so no infection, no other symptoms no cough, sinus pain, red eyes, nothing. Seems a little over the top to go to the GP, any ideas?

You could have a chat with the pharmacist they can advise if you should see the GP or if there is anything you can do/try first.

It depends I guess but my nephew had a constantly runny nose, all the time! Always bunged up. Eyes watering. My sister took him to the GP a lot because he sometimes couldn't breath, they said the same old stuff. It turned out he has something wrong with his tonsils and/or sinuses, that I think were an underlying problem.

What about allergies? Pets?

Hmm hadn't thought of that, his never had this problem before, usually with a cold or something obvious, it's been a very weeks. We do have pets, and a lot of pets but nothing new that coincides with the appearance of the runny nose, we've had them for years.
