In brief: Saline Nasal Spray

The simplest thing to do is use some saline nasal spray - sold over the counter under many brands to keep your nose moist.
At night you can sleep with a humidifier and you can gently place some neosporin or Bacitracin ointment in your nostrils before you go to bed at night to form a protective area over the scabs to prevent drying.

In brief: Keep it moist

A humidifier will help, use vaseline or similar product in your nose a night or if feels dry during the day time.
