Sore in Nostril

I have a small sore in the left nostril that will not heal. It is very painful and Doc gave me Antibiotic ointment to use. It still is not healing and painful. Any suggestions on how I can get it to heal?

Re: Sore in Nostril

My sister had the same thing and her doctor told her that it is due to the dryness in the house during the winter months when the heat is on. Try a humidifier or vaporizer in your home or in your bedroom while you sleep. You might also want to try a salt water nose spray to keep your nose moist. You can do that many times during the day.
