I thought I would show you my new way to cope with a runny nose and do dental hygiene. This was taken a couple of months ago and my work associate forwarded it to me. Now mind you, I did not have a cold. I was not contagious... I only had it a couple of days; therefore, most likely it was a response to some allergy. But my nose kept running, and I had patients I needed to see. I could not have this drip and continually wipe or blow my nose. I got some cotton rolls and stuck them in my nose. Then I put my mask on. No runny nose... no stopping to blow my nose... no rawness beneath my nose... and no one knew what was under that mask!!! The cotton rolls absorbed my "fluid" and my work was not affected. Now I suppose that any of my patients reading this blog will now always wonder.... what lurks beneath that masked woman?
