I was blowing my nose really hard the other day and ended up ripping out a piece of membrane. It hurts like HECK!! Is there anything I can do? There is a big giant scab in there now and it hurts to breathe through!

I use a CPAP machine at night, so they get sensitive easily.

AND no! I was NOT picking my nose!

  • Can I use the "if you pick your nose, your membranes will break" with little kids that can't keep their fingers out of their noses? LOL!!!

  • I work in an ENToffice and you can put any type of lubricant like vaseline or bacitracin on it to help heal faster and to keep it moist. Be very careful when you blow now and try not to irritate it too much with anything. When your nose dries out it will make it worse.
