    running nose?

    Hello Everyone,

    The natural liquid in the nose is running in my son's nose, making PU PU noise! Then what should be said usually in daily English, get rid of the liquid? eliminate the liquid? ...?

    Regards

    Sky

    Many thanks, the answer can not be found in any textbook here, I think! Without the environment, I can only rely on your excellent teachers here!

    A nose that wants to run should be given nasal passage.

    A nose that runs should be chased.

    A runny nose must have flared nostrils in order to be successful!
