Is flaky dry skin normal after FESS, SMH, AND Septoplasty?

Dry, flaky skin after nasal surgery

Sometime the operating room will prep a patients skin in surgery with an antiseptic soap or wash. Often times sensitive skin patients have post operative skin changes like you described or contact dermatitis from this type of soap. Consult with your physician or dermatologist if these skin changes do not improve.
