Nose Cauterized
tradarius posted:
I recently had my nose cauterized, some of the information you posted my doctor did not advise me of, like do not blow your nose for a week. He did advise me to out vaseline on the area. And if it was not for a girlfriend of ming who advise me to use the saline salution I would not have know about that either.
What do you suggest can I use any type of saline salution , I purchase something called Nasal Spray ( Premium Saline ) Nasal Moisturing spray. or should I purchase the gel.
And God please tell me how long will I kfeel uncomfortalbe?

Yes, chemical cautery to the nose is VERY uncomfortable. You should be feeling better soon, however.

Any saline is really okay. The saline gel just stays in better than the more liquid forms. You can make your own saline if you want....1/4 tsp of table salt put in 8 oz of water.
