How can pain in the nostrils be treated?

I had the flu and I was just recovering and now the inside of my nostril stings, especially nearer to the back near my throat and my nose is running down the back of my throat causing me to spit out the mucus, do you have any idea what it could be and if there s anything to ease the stinging as I cant sleep because of it. Thanks.
