Allergy Question

My daughter is 20 months old. She has been having a runny nose for what seems like forever, but atleast 3 weeks. Constantly. It's clear and has never turned color, and she's not teething. I am having to wipe her nose 5 or 6 times an hour, and it just never ends. Today I was wondering if maybe she had allergies? I suffer from really bad allergies and her dad had them when he was younger too. I know mine have been acting up and the seasons just changed. Has anyone else had experience with toddler allergies? What are the symptoms or signs? I don't want to treat her for something she doesn't really have I'm just tired of this runny nose!

It very well could be allergies, being spring and all. Try calling her pedi's office and see what they recommend. They may want to see her, but they might also give some over the counter recommendations that may help. Make sure you have a pen and paper handy b/c being under 2 the dosages on most children's meds aren't listed, and you will have to go by what your doctor tells you.
