I have undergone my septo rhinoplasty about 3 weeks ago.Internal sutures are dissolved or fallen off on their own. I still have lot of mucuous crust inside my nose (specifically where the sutures were).I use saline spray(4 times a day) and apply petroleum jelly to keep it moist and use humdifier while sleeping..when will the mucuous crust come off? will i have to scrap/gently dig it on my own? Thanks for your time!

Crusts after Rhinoplasty
Do not scrape or dig at the crusts. As Dr Placik suggested, ointment and humidification are appropriate treatments. You can schedule an appointment with your surgeon who may choose to remove them.
