Front page news......Woman cuts own nose with snot spray(sorry if that offends anyone)

I was using my nasal spray last night(it helps keep things clear where the COPD is concerned) and I had a bit of an accident. I irritated the lining of my nose and I sneezed. As I sneezed my arm shot upwards. Not unusually for us fibromites you might think, we often fling our arms around with fright or when we sneeze. But I still had the spray nozzle up my nose and as my arm jerked upwards, so did the nasal spray. The result. the nozzle kept going and cut all the inside of my nose lol. Very uncomfortable and very painful I can tell you and so ruddy annoying. Then I was asked if I needed a plaster!!!!!! xxxxx

  • how lucky you weren't using pile cream! oooh matron!

  • Turst you lol to come up with that. I feel like I cannot breathe through that side right now, very sore lol xxxxx

  • So sorry to hear about what happened Ozzy, my nose is sore in sympathy. I use nasal sprays every day, long story, have a history of sinus problems, operations etc.

    I will be more careful with them in future with them.

    I hope your nose pain settles down soon. Have you tried Beconase nasal spray, you can buy this over the counter? I use it when my nose is inflamed and sore, it settles it all down quickly. Better still it doesn't sting when you use it. Check with your GP if you have any concerns over using this spray.

    Hope this helps, take care.

  • I get Nasonex on prescription from GP, have been using it for years due to bad sinuses and repeated infections and I find it works well when it works as long as I do not go shoving it sideways when I sneeze lol. But I may need to have a review as it is not always working well and sometimes I really struggle. But I have to be careful with my GP, if you say something is not working all the time he stops it lol and very seldom makes an alternative offer Think I will stick with this a bit longer, but just be more careful. From my sore nose and me xxxxxx
