Dryness inside nostrils

For last 15 years I am having dry nose. I also got operated my sinuses 10 years ago. There was some relief after that but not got relief completely. I don't feel any blockage inside my nose. Only I feel dryness into both the nostrils. Sometime I apply Vaseline inside the nostrils and it gives me temporary relief. If I have running nose, I feel very comfortable. Any advice/ suggestion regarding my problem would be helpful and wanted know is it normal.

You complain of dryness in you nostrils. Since
You had some operation in your nose 10 years
back, secondary atrophic rhinitis should be ruled out. If no other cause can be found then
moisten your nostrils with isotonic saline nasal drop containing aloe vera. Vaselin may also help by reducing moisture loss.
