Too much cold air entering the nostrils

@learningstudent -try a naturopathic doctor. They know a lot about what can help mucous membranes. ENTs will only want to cut things out. Other than that, they don’t want you to waste their time. Many external factors can cause the dryness in nose, so there is nothing a doctor, especially a surgeon or a pill can do for you when it comes to external irritants. You could also try allergy testing.

Hello, I have suffered from many of the symptoms you've noted during the last few years. As I age the symptoms have become worse. I have gone thru the x-rays, scans, and met with an ENT at Mayo. I have a bloody nose daily in the winter, and this year I've had it all month (June) to my surprise. It usually goes away by this time of the year. Now my symptoms have changed a bit. Not only is the air cold in my nose, my front upper teeth feel like I have an ice bag on them. So strange. I suffer from a level 4 out of 5 severity when it comes to a deviated septum. I have tried the lotions, creams, pills, and sprays, nothing seems to works well. The ENT said she could do the lengthy surgery to try and help me but only gave me a 57% chance that it would help. I have not had the surgery. A mask and petroleum jelly applied to my nostrils at night allow me to sleep for now.

How do I find this kind of doctor?
