It's caused by dryness and allergies, most likely. I have had the same thing off and on most of my life. Whatever you do, don't let someone talk you into putting petroleum products in there for lubrication -- they block the pores and make it worse. You might try some unpetroleum jelly (sold in health food stores) or some aloe gel, just a little on a Q-tip, and see if it helps.
Paxil is absolutely correct about the use of petroleum products.....as he said, they will do nothing except make the problem worse.
Personally I would recommend the use of a Neti Pot. It uses a very mild saline solution and irrigates not only your nose, but your sinuses as well.
recently i was undergone CT scan and found that i was suffering from juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma in my left nose(posterior nasal cavity,the mass extended from formen of sphenoid to pterigopalatine fossa and nasopharynx).one month ago i was operated by the ENT HOD of our medical college by lateral anatomy ,but i still fear that it may be recurrent .there is a thick scar mark after the operation extending from the left corner of my left eye to bottom of my left nostril and thats why i want to have nosesurgery(plasticsurgery),will it be succesfull?
