Sorry, seems ridiculous to make a new thread for such a tiny question but thought you guys would be the sort to know
Have had loads of nebs and patches with nasal canulae over the last week, my nose is clearly dead sensitive to these as its sooo dry and painful, im not getting proper nose bleeds, although i suspect im getting teeny tiny ones as the inside of my nose is all gross and bloody (sorry)
I would normally put some vaseline in my nose, but i remember one time when i was in hosp and my lips were dry and i asked if they had any vaseline and they said they couldnt let patients who were on o2 use vaseline!?! I think it must be something to do with flammablitiy! I assume the risk is pretty tiny, and so as im obvs not currently on o2 it shouldnt be a problem (my only worry is that if its a major issue and i ended up in hosp later would it be a problem!)
sorry for the slightly silly nature of this Q thanks team!
