    I know this is disgusting...

    ...but so is everything else in this forum. [img]/forum/images/smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

    I can pick my boogers with difficulty. I don't have finger movement or sensation so I can't get them all and I am always stopped up. I take flonase sometimes for my allergies which are very mild. Is it ok to use Vicks Vapor Rub every day? What can I do to breath better?

      You should just blow your nose more frequently, you don't need good digital dexterity....unlike this gentleman.

              i have a hard timing blowing my nose too......the best way to do it, is to put your chest to you knees and blow like hell, it helps, trust me.

                Marie - It sounds like you are having secretions that are drying in your nose....boogies! Do you have any humidification in your home/apartment, etc.? It may be helpful to use a humidifier or moist vaporizer in the room in which you spend the most time. Have you tried using a plain nasal saline spray as a moisturizer? You can use this several times a day to help moisten the nasal passages. Lastly, there should not be a problem in using the Vicks on a daily basis, but I would urge you to consider the above suggestions as well. CRF

                  Well, you said it, I didn't... it's disgusting, so I'll just tell ya. I pick Chad's boogers! (ok, stop cringing everyone! someone has to do it!) As completely horrible as it may sound, is there someone you really, really, really trust that would do it for you? A best, best, best girlfriend? Do you have an attendant? It sounds terrible to have to ask at first, but if you have an attendant it's part of their job.

                  Any-hoo, just my 2 cents. Gross as they are! LOL!

                      Marie, maybe use the rubber end of a pencil in a strap around your hand? Or a q-tip? Just don't get it stuck in there!

                          For the really tough ones, a willing soul with a penlight and tweezers works very well...

                          it definitely to is one of life small pleasures to be able to pick your own nose(aah... I can breathe again!).
