 I hate this time of year b/c my allergies get real bad therefore I have to blow my nose a lot. When I do my nose gets real dry and starts to shed. I look as if I have boogies in my nose but its my skin peeling and flaking off. No matter how much I exfoliate to try and rid myself from this it does not help. I even try good moisturizing cream. Any other suggestions to make it stop doing this. Its embarrassing.

I'm not sure..I guess try to wipe your nose or dab it instead of squeezing and blowing.  Maybe use lanolin or a thick emollient, just a dab on that area bc those products far surpass creams with moisturizing.

When my nose gets red & sesitive, I put a li'l Chapstick around my nostrils.

Aquafor or vaseline every night will clear that up.

Vaseline (petroluem jelly) that's your best bet

I read somewhere that the clinique yellow lotion works good for this and doesnt sting...Ive tried it before and it seems to work.

Coconut oil is a good natural alternative to moisturize sensitive skin.
