I have found that the Blistex you use for your lips works just as well for sore noses caused by allergies, etc. No more sore noses!

The last time I used it was on my nostrils as they were sore and red. But I would put it in my nose too for any sores. It would probably help them heal. I love the cool feeling it has, and it is soothing.
I use regular lip balm around my nose and mouth (skin areas and lips) as soon as I get a cold. This helps keep your nose from getting raw and sore when you blow your nose a lot. I just buy the cheapest one there is and use my finger to brush it on the areas.
Blistex/Chapstick is also good for your cuticles, especially in winter. And it is portable!
I use Blistex for many things, sort of like first aid cream. It is good for mosquito bites. I have put it on small abrasions before applying the bandaid. It is wonderful stuff and still fairly inexpensive.
As you have sinuses, your nose eventually gets raw from all that blowing. But today I have a cure! All you do is apply baby lotion or any other kind and smear it on a thin layer over the rawness.
Ever have a cold or other nasal problem that was so bad, your nose got chapped? The skin dries and scabs, and eventually cracks. Pretty painful, isn't it? I have, over the years, found several solutions to the problem.
