Dry nose?


I find that the inside of my nose gets so dry in the winter that it
often bleeds. Does anyone else get this problem and how do you solve

every winter

I have this problem every year. The best thing to do is put a humidifier in your bedroom. Just a small cheap one will do, don't need anything fancy. My friend tells me she bought one at Shoppers last year for $30. You'll be surprise how much this will help.

For a quick fix, use a Q-tip and put some Vaseline (petroleum jelly, not the lotion) or Vicks (if you can put up with the smell) in your nostrils. Someone told me I'm not supposed to put anything up my nose but I find this really helps and I only do this when the bleeding is bad. Make sure you blow your nose beforehand and clean it out as much as you can. Then, apply the vaseline. I do that before going to bed and my nose is as good as new the next morning.

I agree

What Bubbly said. It'll make all the difference in the world! If you find that you're getting sore up there (like maybe a minor infection), try Neosporin instead of Vaseline.

This happens to me every winter and sometimes in the summer too.
Actually I just had nose bleed yesterday at work and that's when I
figured out that time of the season was here again. I also do what
Bubbly suggested with Vaseline in the morning and before I go to bed.

The girls above me have some good ideas...

I get dry nose all the time because I have allergies as well. The humidifier is great, but I also use a special gel inside and around my nose called Rhinaris. It is made for that specific purpose so it is definitely ok to stick up there!

It moisturizes and protects the membranes in your nose without clogging your pores like vaseline. Here's a link to their site: http://www.rhinaris.com/eng/rhinaris.php

Gingercorsair's humidifier suggestion is also a good one. When I was in a smaller room I had one and I find it's also helpful.

Nasal Gel

They are very cheap and there right beside sinus rinses,allergy sprays.Gingercorsair mentioned Rhinaris that one is very good and there's Nasogel.There are many to choice from just go with the cheapest one I find all the ingredients are similar so I always buy the cheapest :) Also if you can find it a Aloe Very nasal spray works really well!I also got a nebulizer from Saje and that has really helped me it freshens the air with the oils in the water and it also puts moisture in the air to breathe in.
