Customer Question
I'm on oxygen 24/7...

I'm on oxygen 24/7 and periodically the inside of my nose burns. Is there something I can do to stop this?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Are you having any breathing problems?

It is not constant, just happens periodically and it is annoying. Nothing serious enough to go to the Pulmonolgist.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have been diagnosed with COPD emphesema and have been on 4.5 liters of oxygen for 8 yrs.

We see this very commonly in patients on oxygen via nasal cannula.

The burning sensation is mostly likely because the air going through the nasal cannula causes a lot of dryness within your nose. This can cause burning and often nasal bleeding.

The best things to do for this are to apply vaseline into your nostril 2-3 times per day. You should also use nasal saline spray 3-5 times daily in your nose. This will really help to moisturize your nose and hopefully prevent the bleeding. Hope that helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
