Nostril Skin Flare at 6 Wks Revision Rhinoplasty, Did I Do This While Cleaning my Nostril?
For the past 2 weeks I've noticed at the very tip of one of my nostrils (at the top of the nostril/below where the cartilage is) is flared out. I had been using q-tips to gently clean out and lubricate my nostrils and inside the tip, as directed by my Dr. I didn't press or stretch the skin around my nostrils excessively, just a gentle pressure while cleaning, and enough pressure to get the mucus out. Did I create this flare when cleaning? Will taping the flare down do any good 6 wks post op?
