constant runny nose in 18 month old girl

Hi, I'm trying to figure out how to help my 18 month old girl. She is constantly suffering from colds/runny nose. When the coughing and fevers go, she continues with the runny nose. She may have had one or two weeks without a runny nose since she started day care 6 months ago. How can I help her? We have tried the over the counter homeopathic medicine from Boiron - Coryzalia for children, but only slight improvement with the cough and fever. She's had this for 2 solid months now. Doctors are unconcerned. This is worrisome to us as parents but also so frustrating for the child. Thank you so very much for your advice.

Thank you so much for responding to my query. Here are the responses as per your request.

The nose mucous is clear but very runny

Pretty much 24/7 although mornings are slightly better

Occasional cough while sleeping

No sneezing

Average thirst - drinks appropriate milk and water

She's a very mild natured child, although has gotten into biting me lately

Haven't observed any difference if it's worse in a cold or warm room

No throat irritation, only occasional cough

Chest is clear, no rattling

I don't understand what you mean by coryza excoriating on the skin or bland - sorry

Not accompanid by itching of eyes, watering of eyes or pain in the ears (although she did suffer from pink eye and ear infection about one month ago - runny nose was already there when she got these other illnesses)
