Skin Cleaning After External Nasal Splint Removal
In the photo, a nose nose and nose bandage were removed. When the band and external nose splint is used to block the air transfer of the skin, the nasal skin appears to be quite healthy and normal color. When the skin is completely cast over the skin and the band is used as a normal skin flutter, redness on the skin of the nose, localized infection areas may occur. Once the nose splint and nasal bandage are removed, you can clean your skin with pure water or using an ocean water spray. Tighten the ocean water spray to a clean cotton and apply gentle movements of the nasal skin to remove the accumulated layer of skin oil and the remaining amount of adhesive residues left in the patch. It is not appropriate to use a chemical or detergent-based product. Once the nasal bands are removed, a simple and a small pair of nose bands can be re-adhered to create awareness for the nasal tip support or nasal aesthetic surgery. You can talk to your doctor for nasal massage for swelling and other suggestions after the nasal cast. I wanted to add here because I was asked so often, "when do I take a bath after nose surgery?" In response to the question, you can start bathing after the second day after nose rhinoplasty surgery, provided that you separate your head and wash your body separately (water should not be missed with shampoo and detergent).
