My nose wont stop running. I hope this will not be a forever thing. at first it was dry and I was told by my doctor to use a cool mist air purifier so i did. and, then I was to also spray saline to help with the dryness due to nose bleeds. Now it just wont stop running. I hear that a few people are getting runny noses since vaping. are you getting one? tired of having to stick tissues up my nose..lol.. kinda looks big and funny...lmao..

Not that I can relate to vaping. It is spring and allergies could be the culprit.

sorry, not had a problem with that--except for allergies. Maybe things are starting to clear out, kinda like the lungs...

Well vaping sure isn't going to help with you'drying out' like that! Especially since your doc told you to use saline spray, etc... he must have noticed that you were really dry. Maybe you should think about easin' up on the good ol vape until this gets better? Just a thought... I mean vaping is just totally keeping you from getting where it needs to be. You really couldn't be doing anything any worse for yourself right now than inhaling that PG/VG... we all know how much it dries us out anyway. I can't imagine being in the shape you are and still vaping.
That's a bummer man...
Hope it passes soon so you can keep hittin' that TANK!

You could be allergic to some of your juices. Supposedly, 100% VG juices are good for people who are allergic. It is also a nasty allergy season, so that definitely isn't helping.

I would bet a lot that it's allergies. I wish I had counted the number of people that are coming into the clinics already miserable with allergies, and it runs down their throats, and they're getting sore throats from it.

I've never had allergies in my life - until this spring, and my poor husband is miserable.

Tags I noticed mine did that when I changed from 100% vg to a mix. With the vg I had really dry mucus membranes with the mix it went from dry to runny. I just went to wal-mart got some glycerin from the pharmacy section and add a couple of drops and that seems to help a little with the runny nose.I realize it decreases flavor but it does help if you need to find a site that has the flavors you like and add a few drops of flavor to off-set that problem.

At the very start of vaping I used 100% VG. I started noticing nose bleeds I never had before. they now stopped since I use 50/pg 50 vg. now it seems like it just runs. I am going to buy some allergy medication and see if it is allergy's. I cant stop the vaping. If I do that i will end up smoking cigs again and I do not want to smoke. I will check out medications to see if it helps.

Sorry your feeling so bad....I know I've been sneezing and having some runny nose, but mine is all seasonal allergies. Nothing I can blame on vaping. I hope you start feeling better soon.

I believe what your referring to is called a "Snot Rocket" LoL 6 months out of the year hubbys nose runs, due to allergies. He rocks the dbl nostril plugs....unfortunately I'm the one who has to pick them up. <_<
