 Do You Have a Runny Nose?

If you have a runny nose, there may not be any reason to be alarmed. A runny nose is a common symptom of everyday allergies to dust, pollen, or other environmental factors. This is because the mucus membranes in the tissue lining the nose over-activate to compensate for the particles that come into your airways while you breathe through your nose. While a runny nose on its own isn’t likely to be caused by an underlying condition, a chronic runny nose couple with other sinus and breathing issues or sleep concerns can be a sign that there’s something more lying beneath. Common symptoms that go along with a runny nose include:

What Causes a Runny Nose?

The cause of a runny nose is going to vary from person to person. A runny nose is most commonly caused by indoor or outdoor allergies including allergies to dust, pollen, and animal dander. Other common causes of a runny nose include a common cold or other viral infections. Runny noses caused by internal or structural nose issues may be a little harder to treat, such as runny noses caused by a deviated septum, inflamed nasal tissues, or benign growths along the nasal walls. The best treatment for your runny nose will depend on the root cause of your condition.

What are the Dangers of a Runny Nose?

A runny nose in and of itself isn’t necessarily a harmful symptom. A runny nose may become harmful when it starts to interfere with your everyday function and activity. Many of our patients complain that their runny nose causes them to have trouble sleeping at night or focusing on school and work during the day. Difficulty finishing regular tasks can often affect our patients’ mental health in addition to their physical health after a period of time.
