    Vaseline in Nose

    I have been using Vaseline in my nose becasue it is extremly dry for over a year. I've tried Rhinaris and Secarus nasel nubricants but they haven't done any good. Vaseline is the only thing that keeps them moist, but I just read that using Vaselien in your nose is harful because it can damage the cilia in your nose and it can cause a form of pneumonia. I used to use a lot of vaseline in my nose, I don't use as much now but I feel I still need it. As soon as I read this I stopped using Vaseline in my nose but I am worried that I might have caused damage to my nose and lungs because I used to use a lot of it. I am not wondering what I can use for it and am going to see my ENT doctor as soon as possible. I was just wondering if anyone out there has this problem or heard of it before.

    HI. I was just talking to a friend of mine whose Dr. has him using Vaseline in his nose because of dryness. I would think it should be fine to use.
