I'm Running and So Is My Nose

I'm Running and So Is My Nose

Does you nose seem to run as fast as your legs when you exercise? Well, you're not alone.

Exercise-induced rhinitis is really common among athletes, according to researchers at the Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Clinic of Colorado.

Rhinitis is an inflammation of the nasal mucous membranes. Symptoms include, excessive mucus production, congestion, sneezing, and itchy watery eyes - fun stuff, huh?

It can happen whether or not you have allergies. And it doesn't matter if you are exercising inside or outside, or if the air is cold or warm. It usually happens with vigorous exercise such as running, cycling, or skiing.

If you don't mind a drippy nose, keep a generous supply of tissues stuffed in your tank top or jacket pocket.

It it's driving you nuts, you can treat symptoms before they start. Make an appointment with an allergist, so you can get a prescription nasal spray. You'll have to take it for a week or so to start seeing results. And you'll have to keep taking it to keep your nose from running and ruining your workout.
