Runny nose is a condition where the nasal cavity is filled with a significant amount of mucus fluid. The condition, commonly known as a "runny nose", occurs relatively frequently in most human beings. It is a common symptom of allergies or certain diseases, such as the common cold or hay fever.

It can be a side effect of crying, exposure to cold temperatures, cocaine abuse[1], withdrawal (such as from opioids like methadone[2]) and under the influence psychedelic tryptamines such as psilocin, psilocybin and psilacetin.
