What Does Dry Nose Indicate Post Sinus Surgery?
Avoid steroid nasal spray...
Thanks for writing back
This is one of the commonest problems faced post septoplasty. This is due to reduction in the mucosal bulk and reduction of the glands associated with the nasal mucosa.
The best remedy for this to use isotonic saline nasal spray as frequently as possible. You can try using saline nasal gel. Nasal gel prevents drying of the nose. Avoid steroid nasal spray and hypertonic saline spray. Both causes severe drying of the nose.
Drink frequent sips of lukewarm water. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, this rejuvenates the mucosa and helps in healing faster. Avoid coffee, smoking, chilled food and beverages.
Hope this answers your query. I will be available for the follow up queries.
