Blisters: From the friction of the constant blowing our nose.....Try not to squeeze on your nose too hard. Also, you can try the tissues with the built in moisturizer. Or simply, moisturize after blowing your nose.

Sore nose: This sounds like abrasions from blowing your nose so much with superficial skin breakdown. There may be a mild superficial localized infection in the skin. A topical antibiotic like neosporin or Bacitracin 2-3 times a day should clear it. If it gets worse, then go see your doctor or an otolaryngologist.
