It is common for the nose to be tender still especially in the tip area where it is more sensitive. This should start dissipating and the sensitivity reducing as time goes on. For the dryness you may want to speak with your surgeon and see if he wants to put you on a lubricating natural nasal spray to help keep the tissues moistened. Best regards!
