Your Cold and Flu Symptoms, Explained
The Symptom: Runny NoseWhat it means: Your body has stepped up mucus production to remove the cold or flu viruses from your nasal passages.
When to worry: If your health doesn’t improve after one week, you could have a bacterial sinus infection, which may require treatment with an antibiotic.
Home remedies: Drink fluids to thin mucus. Chicken soup may help reduce inflammation. Sniff gently into a tissue, as blowing hard can lead to sinus problems.
Over-the-counter remedies: Use a saline spray to help irrigate your nasal passages, or use an oral decongestant or an antihistamine (like Drixoral or Benadryl).
