Does anyone else suffer from this, when I exercise my nose seems to run, even if I blow it regulalrly, it still keeps running, its getting embaressing having to either stop blowing my nose, or just let it run, sniff and wipe,
It is all year round and not just cold weather.
Is this a sign I could be intolerant to something or what?.
Do you suffer from hay-fever or have any other known allergies?
If you run in the countryside I would say that you're having a reaction to pollen; if you run in urban/city areas it might be car fumes or a number of other air pollutants.
A quick, if somewhat messy, possible solution is to dab some vaseline around your nostrils. This normally works for me, although if your problem persists then maybe you should consider allergy testing as it may be related to something that you're eating or wearing during exercise.
I'm also getting this this year it seems more than ever. Like you Becky its wherever I run. I think I will try the vaseline thing!
I should stress that the "vaseline-nostril method" is by no means a magic bullet but it has deffo helped.
I have also recently started using a sea-salt nasal spray called Sterimar which has further helped my overall sinus problem.
I still spend the first mile or so of most runs blowing/wiping etc. but it clears up after that
I get this but it's worse on a windy day. I just wipe it in my top...
