Vics Vapo Rub is also really good for the runny nose issue - a little dab at the top of your chest while you sleep, or you can get the face strips in CVS.
I like to make a chap stick with beeswax, sweet almond oil, peppermint oil, and tea tree oil that I can apply to the skin above my lip while I sleep. It helps keep my nose from running and/or getting stuffy, and I sleep like a baby :)
