I have found warm compresses to be helpful, especially if they are causing pressure around the surface of my nose. I know some people rub salve or ointment in their nose, but I have been reluctant to do that. If they are not oozing, I have snorted warm saline water (kind of gross and messy), but not with the satisfaction that I wanted. Most of the time I just grin and bear it. They can be really uncomfortable and awfully painful. I would love to know if there is an herbal remedy that might be helpful. Hang in there!!!!
