During allergy season, I get this. I use nasal pillows. If I am really down with it, my eyes will be glued shut, but not very often. Three times a year maybe. Someone explained that it pushes the fluid out the tear ducts? Something like that.
I will start looking in the mornings and see if the puffiness is more oftener than I think.

This is scary -- I don't have a cute, petite little nose ... I have a rather large Celtic nose, thanks to my dad ....
so I don't need any kind of enlargement!! I'm using the medium pillows. I tried small and it seemed like I wasn't getting enough air.
Seriously, is this something that happens?!
I haven't noticed any problem with the P10 Clem. I use the medium size and sometimes go to the large size for a week or so. It does remind me of a radio show from my kidhood days: "Who nose what evil lurks in the hearts of man? The Shadow nose......." Apologies are already in the mail.

I read that after nostril enlarging will nasal pillow masks one should use Preparation H to shrink them right back down to normal size, sometimes even smaller! I heard it works wonders on baggy eyes and wrinkles as well.
If everyone thinks alike, then someone isn't thinking.
Everyone knows something, together we could know everything.
Def not putting Prep H up my nose, LOL.
Now the dr is increasing the air pressure in my machine. I'm worried it's going to blow up my nose like never before. Ugh. Am I going to need plastic surgery someday????
Seriously, how long have these nasal pillows been around? Has anyone using the pillows for a long time noticed nasal "stretching"? This has got me worried now. Good Grief.
