You should handle nose waste from illnesses and nose bleeds carefully to prevent to prevent the spread of germs, which can lead to infections and viruses. Everyone is told as a child not to pick their nose because it’s gross. Yet, they are not told how waste from the nose brings harm to the health. Properly removing waste from the nose is not a difficult task. Anyone who is physically capable can learn to minimize the spread of bacteria from nose waste.
Keep a box of tissues with you at all times if you are suffering from a cold or frequent nose bleeds. When you sneeze, hold the tissue up to your nose. Wipe the inside of your nose with tissue and immediately throw the tissue away.
Blow your nose lightly with a tissue if you experience a nose bleed. Press your nostrils together for about five minutes to cease the bleeding. Repeat this cycle of lightly blowing your nose and pressing your nostrils for about 15 minutes.
Take a shower and inhale the steam if you are experiencing a bad running nose or sinuses. This moistens the air and helps to decrease scabbing and crusting in your nose. Lightly blow your nose once you get out of the shower to get rid of the remaining waste. Throw the tissue away immediately.
Place a piece of cotton in both nostrils and breathe through your mouth. This allows your nose to rest from the air passing through that causes drying and crusting. Lightly blow your nose once the cotton becomes moist.
Use a Q-Tip to remove the crust in your nose that is hard to reach or remove. Do not push the Q-Tip back too far into your nose. Throw it away immediately after use.
