Suggest medication for discomfort in nose due to dry mucous

My nose feels uncomfortable and is painful when i touch it. I think that the mucous is dried up and stuck to the insides of my nostrils...it actually feels like there is glue inside my nostril. This has been going on for about 3 days and it is the worst when I wake up in the morning.

Hi,

I understand your concern. I recommend using proper lubrification such as Rhinaris lubricating nasal gel which helps moisturize and lubricate dry and stuffy nose. I also recommend you to drink liquids.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi,

Hello, I am having a lot of abdominal discomfort after switching antibiotics after my wisdom teeth extraction. I went from amoxicillin 500mg to azithromycin 250mg because of severe vomiting due to the amoxil. Now I m constipated and my stool is gray with mucus. I m assuming, since I vomited so much, that I lost a lot of the bile my body had produced. It s also worth noting that I m not eating as much since I can t chew, so I m not expecting these prolific BM s,

Hi, My names Joe and I had sinus surgery 3 days ago(on Monday) to correct a slightly deviated septum, widen sinus cavities, and remove an air pocket. It is now Thursday and my septum splints have been removed but I am having an extremely big problem breathing through my nose, my right nostril in particular. It feels as if theres 2-3 tiny bumps in my nose restricting airflow. I was wondering how soon it will be before I will regain breathability in my nose and for any tips?
