Are these sentences native ? Here are some sentences: 1. I have a runny nose. 2. I have a running nose. 3. My nose is running. 4. My nose is runny. Could you please tell me which one is correct and native, thank you so much. I remembered that probably it is not native to say "I have a running nose " ,but I do see " running noses" in a picture book: Wet Dark clouds, Rain again, Rivers on the Misted pane. Wet umbrellas In the street Running noses, Damp feet.

'I have a runny nose' is speaking generally because it runs sometimes (when you have a cold) 'my nose is running' means right now = I need a tissue I wouldn't say it the other ways. :)

"I have a runny nose" sounds more natural.
