Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum
The scabs inside the nose is because of the drying of the nasal mucosa caused due to the reduced blood supply to the nasal mucosa following application of cocaine. Apply saline nasal cream to keep the area moist and reduce the scabs, consult your ENT specialist at the earliest to prevent any further damage to the nasal septum.
