My mom, 78 years of age, had a cold in the past few days. That is now better but still left with a runny nose. Which over the counter medication can we buy for her. According to my knowledge she has never had sinus or hay fever problems

Hi Ntombi
It should clear up on its own, but you can use Iliadin nasal spray or drops to stop the nose from dripping. If she is on any chronic medication, for blood pressure or anything else, first check with the pharmacist if she will be able to use the nasal spray. You can also try and give allergex or texa tablets for a few days. Good luck and I hope that she feels better soon.
