Hi fellow mylotters! I just want to share with you how am I feeling right now with my runny nose bugging me. Due to some changes in the weather in our place, I got this runny nose some two days ago. I really hate this so much for it usually puts me in a shameful situation. Just like some few hours ago, I was talking with my colleague and suddenly I can feel the fluids coming so I need to turne my back on her and cover my nose with my hanky to stop it. It is really disturbing and iritating too. Not to mention the headaches and fever that it's giving me. Certainly it's pissing me off and it's giving me a bad day in the office and even at home. I can't concentrate with my mylotting with this runny nose on the go. How about you, when you have such problems or illness like this what should you do? Is it pissing you off too?

I have to bring with me always a hanky. There are some moments when i suddenly get the run. It's embarrassing sometimes when you are talking to someone and you need to wipe your nose.

Absolutely, it is embarassing and sometimes irritating too when you have to do it from time to time.

hello shello, Nice discussion. Though running nose seems to be common problem, but it can sometimes really become cause of embarrassment depending on how and where it suddenly starts.It becomes even more difficult if at that time you don't have a tissue or handkerchief with you. If such a problem starts at home then there is a very simple home remedy.Take some carom seeds (ajwain in Hindi/Urdu), bake them a little , put them on plain thin cloth and make a bag by tying it with thread. Try to inhale this bag several time. when it becomes cold, repeat the whole process. This really helps and later you can see the doctor. You should not feel ashamed of this shello, because the opposite person can understand you as sometimes or other, even he must have faced this situation.....If you can practice right now my home remedy, do it....it will really help. Also look on Internet search....I am sure you will find some quick relief. Have a nice day.

Hi there. Thanks for the advice. However, I'm wondering about the carom seed that you are referring is it common in the market or in the groceries? I'm actually in the UAE right now. I'm wondering how it looks like cause I haven't heard of it until today. Hope that it is available then so I could try practicing it now. Anyway, I'm really grateful for giving me that remedy. It's highly appreciated.

Carom seeds. - carom seeds are called ajwaine or wawah in India.
hi again shello.......I am uploading picture for you. I am sure you know about this....it is also used to make salty cookies. It is also eaten by people after dinner or lunch as it digests food....also if you have vomiting sensation, eating carom seeds helps a lot. Thanks for the best answer.......you made my day. ???? ????? ??????? This is what I found on Internet when I translated carom seeds into Arabic language. hope it will help you.

Oh my goodness..!! Donn remind me of how embarrassing it feels...!! YUK..! Before approaching a girl, first gotta clean my nose, and it would feel like, yea now i'm perfect and can approach her...and as soon as i approach her the damn fluid flows with pride..it feels like becoming "Voldermort"(The harry potter one), with no nose at all, lolz..!! And other times whenever i am at some serious situation the nose flows like a river..and feels like running and yelling...!! Otherwise it will never ever flow...and at those times i curse my nose to flow as much it wants in private but never in public...!!!!!! Why does this nose running happen...huh???

Oh my! Now you are reminded. LOL! Well, that situation while you are approaching a girl and then you can feel it coming in front of her is somewhat worst. It would be a total turn off to her. Anyway, runny nose occurs as a symptom of the common cold or allergies. It can be accompanied by coughing or soar throat which can make your condition a lot more difficult.

I remember one time during tutorial class, i had a very bad runny nose that I couldn't concentrate in class. my lecturer was even worried seeing me, she asked me if i have gone to see a doctor which i have and remind me to take my medication. She was very kind to me on that day may be because she felt sorry for me. Before going to class I have taken my pills but no effect at all...and my tissues that i bought was not enough. I felt so shy and avoid talking to any of my friends and at home I quarantine myself so that my housemates won't get infected.

Well, it feels comforting when someone would be very kind to you when you have runny nose. You must be very grateful to your teacher for being the nice person she was. Hope that all people woul always understand on how difficult it is when we do have runny nose.

Very well. I usually have calamansi juice also when I was in the Philippines everytime I have colds and runny nose. It's good for cough too.

Well, of course, if I had to take my net and chase my running nose all over the place (sorry) What I hate worse is the nostril that refuses to open up, no matter how much I try to clear it. I hope you get better soon.

Now I know the good side of having a runny nose. This will somehow help eliminate the annoyance and irritation that I felt towards everytime it strikes.

In many ways, it can cause a lot of unfortunate distractions when I have it. Thankfully, I am lucky enough for it to not happen as often as it might but when it does, there can be problems for me. It irritates me in many ways for sure, as when it does happen, it tends to happen at the worst time possible. Of course, one might be able to state that fact about any illness no matter what the cause might be and how serious the illness is. Finding a proper time to blow it is the real problem I think. And finding something to blow it with indeed. There are times where I am stuck in a place where nothing to blow it. That can be very bad. I just hope no one notices, until I can remedy the problem. That can throw off my entire day, as I am worrying about dealing with the runny nose instead of what I should be doing.

Hi Megamatt. It would be good when we can still have some time to remedy the problem without someone noticing it. We'll just hope that it would happen that way always or else we will be into what you referred as a lot of unfortunate distractions to throw off our entire day.

yes runny nose can give you a really bad day. its better to rest when you have colds.than to continue working.becuase colds if not taken care of.will just worsen.and always drink water when you get colds.

I don't feel ashamed to wipe my nose if I'm cold , but it disturbs things I do, for example I'm painting and all of the sudden I sneeze and it ruined my stroke then I have to paint the area all over again, that's troublesome, or when I'm in dojo I feel sleepy and drained of energy, and my sensei says I'm very slow, it's really troublesome and that's why I always try to wear a face mask to protect myself in public places, but it cannot be helped sometimes, especially in the spring I tend to get cold, even now I'm a little cold.

I dont like having runny nose. I cant breath very well, I feel heavy with my head and I always feel sleepy. I seldom catch a cold anyway but when I have it, I suffer long time.

Dear friend, I would try to avoid it take further necessary steps to stop that. If I am in any public of with other people I avoid it most would stay my self alone as long as that is over.

I have ever had such a problem, which almost the largest nightmare in my life. You cannot control it and it always make you embarrased. It is stopped until one day a package of Chinese medicine which should cured my eyes,but cured my nose. Since then, my runny nose only appeard some specially time. And never make you trouble any more. You must cure it, if not, you health will be dangerous.Good luck!

A runny nose is one of the most annoying things that can happen to you, isn't it? In my case, now that spring is coming I'm fearing my pollen allergy, because that means having a runny nose all the time. When I wake up in the middle of the night with a runny nose I feel horrible. The only thing you can do is help with medicines to cut the runny nose or wipe your nose often

I must admit that runny nose is one of the most annoying symptoms. It doesn't let you sleep properly, because you always end up waking in the middle of the night with a dry throat, because you can't breathe through the nose so you have to use your mouth for that. It's also very disturbing when these fluids suddenly strike at you in the middle of the day. You're in real trouble if you have nothing to cover your nose with.

Well a runny nose certianly puts a damper on the day and makes a lot more work. I can concentrate but not with my entire self and Im always interupted to blow my nose. And the worst is when you cant find a tissue or are i the middle of a conversation or a class or soemthing.
