Nose filled w/fluid due to setbacks; how do I make the itching/irritation and tingling stop? Is it prednisone? Uncomfortable

I'm sad and disappointed to be this swollen at 3 months when I seemed to be healing well. A week ago I rubbed the nose too hard & it balled up with fluid again, so I went on prednisone. Is it just pointless this late post-op? I am trying to prevent further scar tissue formation around my implant. I wish I had known from the start prednisone can cause anxiety/restlessness. More than that, it makes my skin and eyes itchy and the fluid I feel in my nose is really distracting/uncomfortable. What can I do, other than wait? Clean out the nostrils (gently)? Take an antihistamine?
