runny nose causes blistering

My nose runs constantly in the cold weather, just like a tap water and after a few days outside for hours each day I suffer from blistering on the upper lip just under the nasal opening. It is a burning painful feeling. The surface skin turns white and discharges liquid just like a burn. It's almost like my nose leaks acid. Any ideas please and thanks.

Try this. When you're going to be outside in the cold, apply some petroleum jelly to the area under your nose and around your nostrils. Carry a small tube or jar of petroleum jelly so you can reapply as needed. It'll keep the moisture off of your skin. Chapstick might work, too.

Re: runny nose causes blistering

Thanks choirgirl, I indeed have tried this but everytime I wipe my nose the vaseline is removed so it is an ongoing chore if you can imagine the number of times my snozz requires attention in a minute or two. I have even stuffed tissue up there and that looks real pretty but even that isn't the answer but I would really like to know why the liquid is so toxic. I don't have a cold or any symtoms, it just runs steady in the cold weather. Maybe it's viral or a result of my diet, I don't know, just looking for answers.
