TMI Friday: My Poor Nostrils

runny nose

Between the painfully dry winter in Utah, and the nightly abuse of pressurized air from my CPAP machine…my nostrils are suffering.  Between prescription-strength steroid nasal spray, regular swipes of Neosporin on a Q-TIP, and sinus rinses…I’m doing what my doctor has ordered. Unfortunately, I’m getting bloody noses all the time. What’s really gross is waking up with a bloody nose and it bleeds into a CPAP mask. Using a humidifier doesn’t seem to make a bit of difference. Between emotional outbursts of depression and wacky winter weather, I could personally keep Kleenex in business. Good thing their website lets you send a free package of tissue to a friend (*hint hint*).

So loyal readers…what do you do to save your schnoz during the winter?

  • Lots and lots of vaseline… My nose doesn’t get dried out that badly, but vaseline usually does the trick. 🙂

  • I’m surprised my spouse doesn’t have any issues with his CPAP machine drying him out- though his has the humidified mask. In fact, it’s actually seemed to decrease his problems. Sorry about the issues you are having. It’s no fun. I actually make a homemade balm with beeswax, cocoa butter and some other good stuff that helps. Still, nothing works better than the end of winter. Please hurry, Spring!
