I get scabs in my nose and have been told by my Dr to use

Customer Question

I get scabs in my nose and have been told by my Dr to use Vaseline to help relieve them. Is there any thing else I can use to prevent the dryness and scabs from forming besides Vaseline.
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Are you having any breathing problems?
Customer: No breathing problems. About a year or so. The Vaseline helps but it seems like I can't go a day or so without using it or the scabs return.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I do have seasonal allergies and have been told the dryness is due to that. I'd just like to know if there is anything else besides the Vaseline as it gets in my throat and don't know how good it is to ingest it.
