Dear syndie
Crusting in nasal cavity after nasal surgery is quite common. I would advise you to use saline nose drops (I think you are already using it) and liquid Paraffin, saline doches, Vaseline and neosporin are all helpful. Steam inhalation may also help. As the time passes it will improve gradually. If it is not improving after 6 to 8 weeks of surgery go for a ENT consultation
I hope this answers your concern
with regards
