    So I have a cold at the moment. Haven't we all?
    I'm getting that constant runny nose and my room is filling up with tissues thrown at the bin.
    As a consequence I have gotten that pain you get from repeatedly blowing your nose (you know the one!)
    I was wondering if anybody has any products or recommendations to sooth this area without causing any stinging.

    Feel free to post anything that can help get through this illness !
    Thank you

    I know it's weird but when mine gets like that I alternate tissues and baby wipes, or put a tiny bit of Vaseline underneath my nose.

    Put some cream on the bottom bit of your nose and put some olbas oil on your top to get you to blow your nose less. Try to get some Kleenex balsam tissues or any soft tissue.

    Should I use the vaseline like now, or wait until bed time?

    I put some moisturiser that I've got on the area.

    Vaseline felt a bit too odd to put on my nose for me.

    What's this about tissues?? I've been using sandpaper, no wonder my nose is all red and sore! :rolleyes:

    I personally spam lozenges and strong mints and the need to blow my nose usually goes away while i am usinging them. I also keep the window open which also seems to work.

    Thanks for the responses everyone
    I think I'd leave the vaseline till night time.
    Will go find some sudo cream or something !

    Olbas oil is very good for getting rid of congestion. Also treat yourself to wet wipes or something along the lines of that.

    How about that aloe vera stuff? I've heard good things about it, but am not sure if it'd work for this.

    Make sure you're using soft tissues for a start. At night, put vaseline on.
