Red nose help...due to a cold

My nose is extremely red and raw now due to having a cold and having to blow my nose frequently. Does anyone have a suggestion of what I could to help it? I have been putting moisturizer on during the day and Vaseline at night. Is that the best I can do or do you have any other suggestions?

    I'd probably use Neosporin at night instead of vaseline.
    When are women going to face the fact that they don’t know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

    mrs. p is right!

    Vaseline would only clog your pores. i try not to use moisturizers when i have a raw nose too, because they sting when i put them on.

    i usually use a bit of olive oil to soothe the dryness and wait until i'm not blowing my nose every 2 minutes to work on getting rid of the dryness!

    I did the Neosporin for a couple nights and that did the trick. Got rid of the peeling much quicker than usual. I still have a little dryness but that is the norm for this time of year (cold air drys my skin out super quick). Thanks!
