Raw bleeding nose

Hello everyone, I am a two time nesopharngeal cancer survivor, pateient, sufferer, whatever it is called.  Being a two timer (total of 14 weeks radiation to the head, not to mention all the fun chemo) basically everything above the shoulders is functioning at 20% except the brain, at least I think so. Smile

Anyway to make a long story short, of all the miserable sideaffects there is one that I just cant seem to get a handle around.

The inside of my nose gets raw as in like an open sore and it will not go away unless I do sinus rinses with Levofloxacin.

The more I use the antibiotic the more tolerant my problem becomes of the antibiotic so I need a another solution.

I use the netipot twice a day and have tried running numerous crazy things through there without success.

So if somone has any ideas I am all ears (actually only one ear Undecided)

Thank you

    Maybe dryness is the culprit. Have you tried Aquaphor? It seems to be the treatment of choice for lots of skin issues. You might also want to run a vaporizer in your room at night. Hope you find something that works.
