My nose has been quite runny so I have been cleaning with cotton tips for the last week, but the nurses told me to minimise this. Could you tell me when will this stop? Also, have I done some kind of damage to my nose by cleaning so much with the cotton tips. I haven't been putting them up very high.
When Will my Nose Stop Being So Runny? 1 Week After Rhinoplasty

"Runny" Nose 1 Week after Rhinoplasty
Nasal drainage can persist 1 week after rhinoplasty. Technique is important when you clean the nose with q-tips at this time. Make sure you closely follow the instructions of your surgeon. Your surgeon can examine you and then clarify your post-op routine and condition.
