when we have colds, why is the other nose dry and the other wet even though both holes are connected to one nasal pipeline


“I mean the nose holes”

Thats what she….. said?

You only ever use one nostril at a time. This is so that when one gets clogged, you can switch to the other. With a cold, your mucus builds up faster, so it will block the active nostril quicker. That excess mucus causes you to notice when you normally wouldn’t, but you always have a drier and wetter nostril.
