Don't worry: There is little cause for alarm. The key is to leave it alone, don't fuss with it, pick at it, or put anything into your nose, and it will likely be fine. Stay away from nasal decongestant sprays (and especially do not snort Cocaine or other drugs). See an ear nose and throat specialist if pain or bleeding occur. ...Read more

Dry nasal crusting: Greetings. Fancy words for "boogers". These episodes happen from xcessive dryness. Saline nasal spray and AYR gel may be the answer. Sleep with a humidifier and drink more water. If these suggestions fail to resolve the issues, see your ENT. An antibiotic covering Staph may be needed. ...Read more

Can vasoline help scabs inside my nose?

Dr. Candace Spann

See your doctor: While vaseline can help soothe scabs in your nose, you may require an actual treatment in order to get rid of them. Many people carry staph aureus bacteria in their nose. Others carry the herpes virus in their nose. Your doctor can culture the affected area to help you treat the scabs more effectively. ...Read more
