Don't worry: The soap might slightly irritate your nose but it will not cause any lasting problems. It should be fine by tomorrow. It would have been good to try to flush out your nose with water.

Try a humidifier - even the inexpensive ones can help. Another option would be saline sprays/gels available over the counter you need moisture ...Read more
