I Feel Burning Feeling Inside My Nose

viciouzbarbie posted:
When I was talking to someone, saliva got into my nose a little and I still feel the burning feeling. I'm also worried if something might develop inside my nose from his mouth. Do you think I should be ok? And I can't even tell for sure if I have something appeared inside my nose or not because I don't want to put my finger inside there. Should i leave it alone instead of feeling it with finger or anything like that?

You will be fine....saliva will not harm the nasal mucosa. If you want, you can spray some saline nasal spray in your nose to make it feel better.

Oh ok. I thought it was herpes or some kind of bacteria or disease transmitted into my nose from saliva. I'll get the saline nasal spray, thank you.

It feels like there's a scab inside my nostril or something. I dont want to touch it inside because I don't want the nostril to get bigger or anything. But I did order the saline spray from online. I'm still waiting for the saline spray to arrive.

You can MAKE your own saline: 1/4th tsp of salt with 8 oz of water, or by it an any pharmacy. One product is called Ocean -- very inexpensive.

You can have a scab inside your nose. Any chance you have have a medical provider examine you?

Yes it has been examined few months ago and everything was fine. But after someone's saliva got into my nose, I feel a scab or something inside my nose. But I ordered Ocean saline from the internet last week and hopelly it will arrive soon. If not, I'll try making my own saline.

When you were examined a few months ago, did you have this "scab"? Things change, so if this is a new finding, you might want to consider getting examined again.

No not at that time. But I can't afford to go to a doctor right now but I will try to go sometime in the future when I can.
