Ocean Spray is a good saline, although usually the "store brand" is less expensive and is the same. It helps me with stuffiness but not the sores. Since my doctors offer no suggestions for it I have had to use trial and error. Otherwise, I have a sore, visibly red nose even from the outside which makeup won't cover. I realize cortisone use has its issues, but we all weigh risk and benefit with everything we take or use. Many of us have to use sysytemic corticosteroids which is far riskier long term, but we have to deal with the symptoms we have and try to live our lives. This is the only thing that works for my nasal sores, however they are inside the nostrils and not in the septum - which probably makes the difference here. Thanks!
