My son has had this cold for four days now, and as bad as I feel already, his nose has been running like crazy, and we didn’t have any tissues, so I thought I would allow him to use a wet washcloth to prevent his nose from getting sore, and I also allowed him to wipe his own nose since he felt more comfortable that way. Well I guess I made a huge mistake and now he’s paying for it. Now I have had my nose rubbed raw and it hurts, but I have never seen it so bad. It is so red I almost want to cry every time I have to wipe his nose. If this keeps up it’s just going to get worse and worse and end up probably bleeding. I don’t know what to do. I’ve tried Vaseline and tissues with lotion in them, and I’ve even used a different brand of Neosporin on it which I was told is safe if it gets inside his mouth. That’s all I know what to do and nothing is working! Please tell me there’s something else I can do here, or if this is all, and just wait till his nose stops running.
