View Full Version : Sneezing and runny nose

05-03-2006, 07:31 PM
Ok, after I get done running some days I get sneezing a TON! And my nose is very runny, anyone else get this or know what it is from?

My guess is maybe alergies? Or just the dust?

A lot of runners follow this guideline: if the cold is above the throat, run easily and if it is below and in the chest ease right back or stop. There are some documents theories on the later being very dangerous. If you have a cold that is in the chest, than you need to seriously consider talking with your doctor.

I think your case is not the later case. It can be due to dust, coz it happens with me too. I'm porn to allergies, especially dust. Some times after running I sneeze for at least 10-15 times and both my eyes and nose keeps running. Just avoid dusty paths.

I think running in general just gets the mucous going for just about anyone. As for the sneezing, it may be as simple as the fact that you are outside and breathing in a bunch of allergens.

I almost always get mucous drainage during exercise (running or whatever). For running, what helps me is to do a little warm-up before leaving the house. Like, running in place or jumping jacks. This gets the nose flowing and I'll blow my nose once or twice and be done with it so my run goes smoother. Now, hayfever allergies are another story. For that, I either just plan an easy run day or hit the treadmill at the local gym.

I'd say its all dust, because on another thread on this site someone said when running, do it threw your nose. And since we all know your a crazy runner, you must get some stuff up in there, lol.

so i'd say dust.

It's interesting to hear that others have a similar problem to me. When running I almost always get a runny nose. I've learned to make sure that I always have a tissue or two in my running shorts!
