Actually in the summer time. Get the runny nose most I clean my nose with arm and hammer saline it's a spray and 2 times a day I take Tylenol cold and omg it helps


Muustangman, I'm sorry to hear you're going through such a difficult time 😞 it sounds to me like you really need to see a doctor about your eyes and nose, it could be allergies, but there is no way anyone here can diagnose you. For relief try using a cool, damp wash cloth to gently wipe your eyes(closed) a few times a day after using eye drops. For your nose there is Ayr nasal spray and gel(helps sooth the outside of your nose) Be sure to keep your cannula nodules clean too.

I use to take Eliquis, but am on low dose aspirin now. I do use oxygen, what kind do you use? Does it have a water bottle for humidity? I think it would be a good idea if you talked to your lung doc about getting Home Health or going to Pulmonary Rehabilitation. I hope I can be of some help. πŸ‰πŸŒ… grannyk3

More: Do you know the number for the local ask -a-nurse? They can be of big help until you get to a doctor. Also, be sure you're drinking plenty of water, eating and sleeping well along with at a little exercise. All of these things are important. What medications do you take?
