Why is my nose so dry in the winter?
Are you like me with this cold weather? I stay indoors where it is warm! But, I had severe nasal dryness and even bleeding when I blew my nose some days.
Winter weather brings lower humidity indoors than you may be used to. Without a humidifier the humidity level in your home and work environment can at times be lower than 20%. An Ideal humidity indoors is 40-50%. No wonder your nose is so dry.
I found a solution that is highly effective. Thank You Dr. Pogie. An excellent way to moisten nasal passages and soothe the effects of winter dryness is using a nasal rinse. It’s safe and natural too. Nasal rinsing can also remove dirt, dust, pollen and other debris, as well as help to loosen thick mucus. It can help relieve nasal symptoms of allergies, colds and flu. It has become a daily routine for me, like brushing my teeth.
Many of our patients have come back for their follow up visits and have been amazed at how truly effective this simple solution is for them.
Try it. You just might like it.
