not familiar with nasal prothesis but wondering if Aquaphor might help? They have it at Walgreens.

as I didn't know exactly what you're dealing with.  Could the blisters be due to an allergy to whatever you use to keep it in place?  I think if you explained to us how it is applied, and what you use to keep it on, we might come up with some ideas....expecially someone who has a trach, or a TEP to talk with....they have to use special types of adherents to keep them in place.
