    Exclamation Dried up, hard booger stuck in nose!

    This is strange to explain, but in my nostril there is this dried, hard bogger that is latched somehow in my nose. It reminds me of a hang nail and wedged waay up there, too impossible to get out! About a month ago I had FESS and a deviated septum. I irrigate a lot too and doesnt wash it out. This is driving me crazy b/c I can feel it when I blow and sneeze. I see my ent in 2 weeks. can anyone relate to having these?

    to my understanding, i think polyps are like water filled sacs. this is thin and pointy. i see it in the mirror and it has a greenish tint. eww

    If this is for real, try some vaseline on a q-tip....

    For some reason I don't think this is for real, but if it is grab some tweezers and pull the dang thing out.

    Well, good! Probably is stitches. I had those as well and yes they just hang down and they take a while to disolve. I hope that it goes away. A little pull probably won't hurt it at this point though. I pulled some of my stitches out that took to long to come out and it made no difference.
