It's wise to see your vet. Your dog could have something blocked in his nose, to allergies. Dogs can also get Rhinitis. Don't second-guess this and see that vet.

If it's determined that it's just a bit of dry skin (possibly due to whether, or even plastic bowls - it's best to use stainless steel) a good natural moisturizing wax can be used. I use a product called "Dog-ma's Own" - and yeah... you guessed it. It's part of the product line I make and sell. Feel free to drop by my website (noselicks.com) and email me if that's what your vet thinks the problem is.
