Can I Clean My Nostrils After Rhinoplasty
The question is, if you have some dried blood in the nostrils can you clean that out? The answer is ‘yes’, but you have to be very careful with that. The best way to do it is to apply Polysporin on a regular basis to the nostrils. It helps to soften those blood clots, and then you can gently clean them with a softened Q-tip. Again, you have to be very careful not to poke around too much inside the nose, and most patients are pretty reasonable about just removing a small amount of clot or crust if they need to.
