    FEELS LIKE MY NOSE IS ON FIRE

    Hi, I have COPD and am on oxygen. I have a humidifier in my bedroom already, which my pulmonologist told me would help. I cannot have any surgeries that are not life threatening so having nasal surgery is out of the question. I broke my nose twice and believe it never healed properly the second time. So I have had horrible nasal problems before I was even on oxygen. I believe there is a hole in my nose, I really do, that can reach as far as under my facial skin. Don't ask me how I know but I do due to a disgusting experience. Anyway now that I am on oxygen it is even worse and I am in pain, like a lit match is up my nose. I so badly want to use vaseline but I know that would mess with my O2 any ideas?
