Nose, nose, jolly red nose

I have a tap instead of a nose.

I am halfway through my second box of tissues in two days. It is quite disconcerting. I woke up this morning and spent the first half an hour sneezing, sniffing and nose emptying. Throughout the day I have undertaken the same activities on many occasions. I am very frustrated. I can breath but it is only after a sneeze or two.

I have this issue with pseudoephedrine which I have mentioned. I don't mind trying to figure out how to stop my nose running - but I just wish it would join me in the effort.

Now to try an turn off the tap.

The neti pot helps my sinuses stay healthy. I hope the tap gets shut off soon for you.

I would try the neti pot and I just now see that kitkat has suggested the same thing. I get dried elderflower, boil it in water to make a sort of tea, let it cool, strain the elderflower and rinse the "tea" through my nose using the neti pot. Works every time and the elderflower is soothing and reduces sinus inflammation.
