Yes I have tried to stop snorting but the burning is what is keeping me from doing so. I snort and take orally, I cut back orally because I was doing ALOT with the combo and am now way down orally, I have tried quitting snorting cold turkey, tapering off, but no matter what it starts burning, my eye swells and waters and I CANNOT take it.

Like I said I have tried everything from motrin cold and hot compresses to alchohol and ativan to get the burning sensation to go away so I could quit but it was always just to much. I was hoping maybe I could put some antibiotic ointment on it with a q-tip then pack gauze in it something to keep pressure so it won't burn as bad and try that route. I do try to flush with saline drops 4-5 times daily to keep it from getting dry and burning as bad but only works temporarily.

I really am not trying to be difficult but I just hoped that somehing other than ativan and alchohol will get me healed up past the burning sensation I DO NOT want to replace one addiction with another then be addicted to ativan and/or alchohol.

Thanks ex you rock and your quick answers has helped alot thank god for people like you.

If you've stopped snorting, the nose will eventually stop burning and heal. If it's not a "hole" yet, then by stopping, you will not do any further damage....What's there will scar over and heal.

If it's not too far up there, I would try putting some neosporin on a Q-tip and dab it on the wound. Most Neosporin today actually has a small amt of lanicane in it, so it will help a little bit with surface pain control. This will also help it from getting infected. I use it in my nose all the time to help with the sinus infections I get....This was recommended by my ENT.

The Hyrdro you have will help with pain if you take it orally. Not sure what your condition is, or why you take it. One of the reasons it hurts so bad is that you have increased sensitivity to pain (in general) from the regular use of narcotics. This comes with the territory.

Hope you feel better @ some point.
