Health Tip: Getting Rid of a Runny Nose

(HealthDay News) -- From chilly temperatures to the flu or allergies, a runny nose has a variety of causes. A prescription antibiotic usually is not needed to treat a runny nose, says Cleveland Clinic.

To get rid of a runny nose, Cleveland Clinic suggests:

  • Rest as much as possible.
  • Drink lots of fluids, especially water.
  • Use saline nasal spray to relieve symptoms.

A runny nose will typically go away on its own. However, if symptoms persist for more than 10 days, or seem severe, visit your doctor.
