So my friend got the oil of a Fresno pepper up her nose and has tried everything. From crying to her nasal spray and nothing is working. Help?

In brief: Time

It is not clear if there is an antidote to pepper oil.
It may just take time to clear out. Your friend should clear out her nose with water to facilitate the process. The fewer other chemicals she introduces into her nose the better.
