My nose constantly runs when I’m sick ?

My nose literally, LITERALLY runs every second of every hour of every day for a week and a half straight when I have a cold. It’s awful. I have never in my life see anyone who has such a runny nose. I understand that everyone gets a runny nose but not like mine. If I’m home, I’ll shove tissues up my nose because it just hurts too much to blow it constantly. Once I get back from work, my nose is raw and nearly bleeding because I haven’t been able to plug my nostrils all day. Does anyone have this problem? And do you have any tips on how to slow the dripping at least a little? I’m so desperate.

    Triple antibiotic ointment, vaseline, petroleum jelly, puffs plus lotion.  The trick is to start using these sort of products at the very start. That will help prevent some of the irritation and crap from all that blowing. Which is not only wiping skin that s not used to it, but removing the natrual oils in the skin. Putting a coating on the skin, helps keep some of the oils in and gives a slight barrier to the wiping. 

    You are draining, sinuses are used to remove waste from the system in the case of a cold like you are describing. Blocking them up like you are also describing leads to an increased chance of a infection in the sinuses cavities and such. Spend 7 days in the hospital for one, docs worried about it getting into the brain and causing death. You'll gain an appreciation for blowing as much as that crap out as you can.

    look up clarifix, but if its only when you are sick you might not be a candidate.
