I am 2 weeks post op and my nose is extremely dry. It looks like there is layer of dirt on my nose and it is flaky with blackheads. Is it safe to use Biore strips to get rid of the blackheads? Is there any cleanser that can be recommended to make my nose look more presentable? Also is there anything I can put on my columella incision to help with the healing?

OK to use Biore strips on nose skin 2 weeks after Rhinoplasty?
No, you should not be moving and lifting the skin of the nose that much 2 weeks after a rhinoplasty.
