Really Dry Nose?

Post by Erica » Mon Feb 15, 2016 9:22 pm

I'm guessing it's a side effect of the cold, dry air around here, but the upper surface of Delta's nose is very dry. My hands' skin is dry too and it can be almost painful. Is there anything I can/should do about his nose?

Does he still have moisture/snot coming OUT of his nose? So it's just the top cap that's a bit chapped and dry? If that's the case, I would just smear a liberal amount of chapstick, lip balm, salve, or what-have-you on the nosecap. In fact, I bet a dab of Musher's Secret would do the trick, if you have any.
If an opportunity comes to you in life, say yes first, even if you don't know how to do it.

Yep, still moist on the front, just not the top. I do have Musher's Secret - sound like a good plan :)
