Hi, i'm 2,5 weeks post-op so today (don't ask me why) i really picked inside my nose from the right nostril. I should mention that i really got up there. Now i have noticed new swelling along the right side of my nose and i'm really regretting what i have done. I noticed that my right nostril (which is the one i picked inside) is now ironically smaller than my left one now (quite noticeable). Whould you suggest that this is because of the swelling? I have put ice on my nose now.

Swelling after cleaning your nose may have caused temporary asymmetry of your nostrils. Although it is unlikely that you did any permanent harm, schedule an appointment with your surgeon.
