Yes, both are safe. If you have a sore or pimple inside your nose the antibiotic cream will work better. If you have a dry nose the Vaseline will work better. I carry Neosporin with me just for this sort of thing.

Do you often snore when you have got a cold?

Yes it's very common, as the nasal passage is blocked, and is hard to breathe through. Nose spray can help but also soft paraffin (Vaseline) is something we use on my family and you put it inside and outside the nose and it makes the mucus looser so you can blow your nose.

What to do when your nose is sore when you blow your nose so much?

You can use Vaseline or Neosporin, they both work, also try using tissues with lotion. UPDATE: If Vaseline is making your nose feel hardened, you can also try Neutrogena Hand cream. But DO NOT pull/peel off the hardened, crusty parts. It will burn and bleed like crazy. Take it from someone who made the mistake.

You can use a clean, damp washcloth or a baby wipe and make sure you dry the fold afterward.

The assistant at my vet recommended this and it works like a charm!

Is a nose bleed a sign of leukemia?

A nose bleed can happen for several reasons. Dry air, damage to the thin layers of skin inside your nose also high altitude and pressure. The best way to know what the cause or reasoning for your nose bleeds is to consult a doctor. If you notice that in extreme heat or extreme cold you experience nose bleeds typically it would be due to the air quality. Try applying a small thin layer of vaseline or use a nasal spray. If continues, seek doctor or professional help.
