  • Don't take medicines containing aspirin or ibuprofen
  • Avoid bending or heavy lifting
  • Be careful not to bump your nose and avoid touching any of the dressings
  • Keep from blowing your nose until you are approved to do so
  • Try to sneeze or cough with your mouth open to reduce pressure inside your nose
  • Avoid wearing eyeglasses or sunglasses. If needed, they can be taped above the nose
  • Protect your nose from the sun and use sunscreen
