Dry, painful sinuses, just inside the nostrils with constant throat clearing

For the past 3 weeks I have painful, dry nostrils. The crusts are hard. When I twitch my nose, my nostrils hurt.

I also am constantly clearing my throat and cough to remove phlegm. Not sure if phlegm originates in my chest or drips down my throat from nose. Nose sometimes gets watery.

Please advise.

Re: Dry, painful sinuses, just inside the nostrils with constant throat clearing

I don't know if they're related - it sounds like your nose is just dried out (maybe from air conditioning). For that you might try some petroleum jelly inside your nostrils using a q-tip.

The throat clearing and mucus could be from acid reflux or allergies, you may want to try an antihistamine like claritin or zyrtec, or if you have heartburn you might try Prilosec OTC for a couple of weeks.
