Whether I'm outside or in, cold air makes my nose run. Its not that I'm catching a cold, it will just start to run. Its been that way for years.

Well, it happens to me sometimes. But not always. I infact like it when it is cold outside. I get a lot of sneezes when there is a sudden change in temperature but nothing very serious. The body gets accoustomed to the temperature and I start to enjoy the cold air.

Me too! Lately, as the weather starts getting colder in the early mornings here in my country, I'd catch myself sneezing several times which would herald the runny nose period. It's also been this way with me too since I was little. Also when I stay long inside airconditioned rooms that are too cold, I get a runny nose. I guess we have a thing called allergy rhinitis. Such a bother because I need to be near a roll of tissue for about an hour or two. But when the sun comes up, my nose starts drying up. Yeah, weird. What's worse is, I think one of my sons is starting to exhibit the same symptoms! :(

If I'm inside my nose will not run, but if I'm out in the cold for a long period of time my nose will eventually begin to run. It would seem as if I was getting a cold, but as soon as I come in and get warm I'm fine.

Yes, I find the being in the cold air makes my nose run also. I am getting ready to go outside and rake leaves and expect that my nose will be running from the cold air at first and later because of allergies to the leaves. But my husbands allergies are more severe than mine so I'm the one to work in the yard. Also, he could really care less what the yard looks like, so he would never get to it anyway. Well that's more than what to asked for isn't it.
