Too much cold air entering the nostrils

Sounds like "empty Nose syndrome". I had sinus surgery and the doctor removed part of my turbinates. In fact, too much of my turbinates and left me with ENS. Not fun. Check it out on google and good luck.

@drumline7860– “Empty nose syndrome” or post nasal surgery dysfunction is an iatrogenic condition. I am very sorry for what you have had to go through and are still going through. However, if someone has not had surgery it is not kind to send them down the rabbit hole of ENS. There are many things that can mimic ENS symptoms. A non operated patient would not have this. In saying that, I would encourage any patient who is experiencing nasal symptoms to steer clear from an ENT. At most see your PCP. And know that no doctor can help you with a dry sensation/too much air in your nose. Only you can help yourself, through, hydration & humidification. The other parts of sensation are often stress driven, as many nerves in the nose are over activated by stress. Emotional stress, goes through the nose. Environmental stress, goes through the nose. The nasal mucosa that lines your nose is the same that lines your gut. It protects yourself from many things. If more people knew this, and how to properly maintain this vital organ, there would be no ENTs in business. Rather than google a rabbit hole of “dis-eases”, look for ways to improve upon your health as a whole. Some people are just more sensitive than others in the nasal cavity. And that’s it. Learn ways to manage. But do not take pills or let a doctor touch you.
