Nose cleaning question

So 13 months out from 3rd revision rhinoplasty and I still have all this dry crusty snot around my nostrils. I stopped using saline spray. Should I resume? Also how can I clean that area? I don't want to stick anything in my nose and it still seems to be so sensitive I'm afraid going after it with a washcloth will aggravate it.

Nasal Crusting

You should see your rhinoplasty surgeon. You may have an infection- a culture from a nasal swab may be helpful. If you had an implant placed-it could be exposed and causing this too.
