Thanks for your question.
I don’t make a point of taping the nose after a Kenalog injection. I don’t think it would do any harm to do so,
though. I agree that it’s best to stick
with the protocol your facial plastic surgeon likes to follow, so touch base
I typically tape my patients' noses for a few hours after injection with 5-FU/kenalog, but each surgeon will have his/her preferences. Best to touch base with your surgeon and follow his/her care instructions to ensure the best results.
