I just had a rhinoplasty last saturday, he didn t put cast or packing (which is very comfy than having it on). this is my 10th day. my surgeon already removed the stiches from my nose (10thday) . My nose are really itchy, dry and oily. What can i do? Can i scratch it? my lips are also so dry and my cheeks are still swelling.. thank you
