If had nosebleed, used afrin (oxymetazoline) spray, how soon should one start KY jelly to moisten nose?

In brief: KY or saline gel

After the bleeding stops use KY or saline gel multiple times throughout the day.
Saline solution may soften the crusting. Use Afrin (oxymetazoline) for 3 days after the cessation of bleeding to constrict intranasal blood vessels (if not contraindicated).
