1-week Post-op: Am I Cleaning my Nose Too Frequently?
My nose seems to constantly be "running." It's a clear, thick mucus that I assume is normal, especially since there's no blood. However, my surgeon recommended that I only use saline spray to clean my nose and keep it moist. I've been using Q-tips with hyd. peroxide to gently clean the inside since I can't wipe/blow it yet. Is this okay? I've had the urge to clean in about once an hour and I don't know if this will result in excessive scar tissue or swelling. How much cleaning is too much?
