It sounds like you have somehow gotten a type of seborrhea or dandruff inside the nose. I recommmend you use hydrocortisone cream 1% applied in the thinnest possible layer to the inside of the nostrails, 4-5 times a day until it is gone and then for several days more. Sorry to hear you are uncomfortable.

Kind regards,
