One of the worst things to suffer from during and after you have a cold is a dry, red, cracked, peeling nose. I know I personally hate it, but I know a few tricks to help get that nose healed up fast and looking and feeling a whole lot better.
The first trick I know for trying to heal a red cracked nose is using a little bit of an antibiotic cream such as Neopsorin. The antibiotic cream will help heal the red cracks on and under your nose in about 3 days. The way you apply the antibiotic cream to your cracked nose is by taking a cotton swab and squeezing some of the cream onto it and than taking it and applying a thin layer of the cream to the cracks on my nose. I usually like to apply the cream to my cracked nose before I head to bed so my nose can have the whole night absorbing the healing antibiotic cream and have time to heal all night long. Than in the morning when you wake up your nose will be all healed up and a lot less red.
The second trick I know for trying to heal a red peeling nose after a cold is to take a little facial scrub and scrub all the dead dry skin off your nose. After take a little bit of aloe vera and massage it into your red sore nose until it is fully absorbed. You will want to apply the aloe vera to your nose at least 3 times a day or more. The aloe will work to help heal the skin on your nose while soothing the red irritation. You should notice after a day of using the aloe vera a difference in the way your nose looks and feels which should be a whole lot better.
The third healing trick for a super dry red peeling cracked nose after a cold would be to simply take some Burt’s Bees Lip Balm or Carmex and rub it directly into your nose before you head off to bed. The ingredients in these lip balms help exfoliate the dry skin on your nose while providing a cooling soothing sensation to your nose that will help relieve some of the soreness. The lip balms also contain ingredients that will even help moisturize and protect your nose from further redness and dryness which is what you need during and right after a cold. Than after a night or two of doing this to your super dry red peeling cracked nose your nose should be all healed up. Now you can also use this healing trick during a cold to help prevent your nose from becoming red, sore, dry and cracked by applying the lip balm every night that you have a cold to your nose. It sounds funny, but it actually works and keeps your nose from becoming red and sore.
These are a few of my little tricks to help heal a dry red cracked peeling nose and I hope they help you out as well. Oh yes, one last thing! Get some tissues will lotion or aloe in them because that will also keep your nose from becoming red, sore, and dry as well during your cold. I hope you all get better really soon!
