Help....Child Nasal Issues

To make this short and sweet we moved from a high desert area of the country (Santa Fe, NM) to New Orleans, LA. Our four year olds nose has ran no stop ever since the move 5 months ago. He is always sucking it up and it causes lots of coughing at night time because he hasn't quite learned how to blow it out and it drips in his throat and causes phlegm. Now that we are in a new environment with humidity etc how can we lessen his runny nose and phlegm he gets all the time now?

Ugh.  I have a son like this.  Where all the snot comes from, I have no idea!  We finally put him on year round OTC allergy pills.  I'd talk to your doctor and see what they think.
