He has a runny nose.

He pointed his nose and said,

"See, my nose is running."

Can running use as above? Or there is another way to say the situation above.

  • I might use "Look" here rather than "See" as the initial interjection. Both are correct, but "See" is used either as a meaningless conversational filler or to say "see, you may have been sceptical or doubtful, but here's the evidence". "Look" is used to ask someone to look in a particular place or at a particular thing.
