Question Best Tissues for a Sore Nose?

Ive got a lovely cold at the moment and my nose is like a tap, from all the sneezing and rubbing, its also gone a nice shade of red and my 30p Sainbury's own brand seem to be making it worse.

Which are the best tissues out there to help a sore nose :confused:

Kleenex Balsam (balsalm??), I keep trying other brands, but nothing comes close to those ones. They are worth the extra pennies.

Also look out for a product called 'happinose' it's like vaseline/chapstick for your nose. I am addicted to it!

Hello KizzyK

I agree with pboae, the Kleenex Balsam tissues are fabulous. Even if you start using them after developing a sore/red nose.............they work fast to restore your nose to normal.

I haven't tried them myself but a money saving option is the cheaper Asda version of these tissues. The prices in Asda are:

Kleenex Balsam regular tissues 90s are £1.75
Asda Ultra Soft & Strong balm tissues regular 90s are £1.00

While you're waiting to nip out and buy the Balsam tissues (which I also recommend!) try using kitchen towel - it's better than 'normal' tissues I find.

Also a dab of Vaseline round your nostrils can help. Greasy but effective!

handkerchief or piece of soft rag will work better than any tissue. And cheaper too.

I love Happynose! its a lovely menthol soothing balm you apply after you have blown your nose - it lasts ages - I bought mine about 2 years ago and I still have loads left (I suppose I should throw it out though due to expiry dates etc...:confused: )

Another vote for Happinose here .

We keep it in the fridge :confused: . It's soooo soothing if you have a sore nose.

You cannot live as I have lived an not end up like me.

Oi you lot - please GIVE BLOOD - you never know when you and yours might need it back! 52 pints so far.

I normally use any value brand tissues on a daily basis but when I have a cold I treat myself to one of the balsam boxes. Doesn't matter which one, any I've tried has stopped my nose from getting sore.

Hope OP feels better soon

I use baby wipes to wipe DS nose when it's runny, he doesnt get sore but does if i use tissue, although i doubt it's easy lugging baby wipes about unless you have a child in tow which usually comes with a bag of some sort!
