If it is just a runny nose--no fever, no vomiting, and the stuff running out of his nose is clear--he probably is just teething, or might have a reaction to the changing temperatures if you are in an area where the climate is up and down right now. (I always get a runny nose when I go from outside where it is warm to a very cool indoor place, and my son does the same).

If he has a fever, if the discharge from his nose is green or yellow, or if he is vomiting, you need to take him to a doctor. If you cannot afford medical care, there are programs that can help you get medical care for him for very little.

If your baby is sick and needs medical attention they can't refuse treatment because you are unable to pay if you are in the US. But in the future you should see what programs you qualify for because at no time should you forgo medical treatment for your child because you can't afford it.
