I've had severely dry and cracked nasal passages ever since I had that nasty cold a few weeks ago. For the past few days, I keep getting nose bleeds because my nose is so swollen and dry. Tonight, I set up a humidifier but I'm looking for some immediate pain relief. I was using aquaphor but I've just read that you're not supposed to use petroleum jelly products in the sinus passages due to the increased risk of pneumonia but there were other OTC products that are supposedly safe. I don't have any of them, can I use olive oil?
Don't laugh at me, it hurrts!
