Dear Lawrence

Some conditions could create a thickening of mucus in the nasal cavity. The cause could range from allergies to infections. You should see a doctor to make a diagnosis, as the management is different for the various conditions.
As far as cleaning out the nose, it would be better to use a saline solution to achieve this. Please see a specialist to correctly diagnose the cause, and to initiate appropriate treatment.
