| | Pain and swelling on one side of nose???
I have allergies and asthma and I woke up a few days ago or at least I noticed it a few days ago, that my left side of my nose on the bony area is a little swollen and VERY tender to the touch. It even bothers me to wear my sunglasses. Now, with that being said, my allergies seem to be bothering me. I have been sneezing a little which generally speaking, I only sneeze when my allergies are bothering me. The other night, my left eye was REALLY itching and watery to where I kept rubbing it for the itching and wiping it so that I could read. Now, my nose is so very sore to the touch on that side. I don't think there is any pain on the inside of that nostril, just on the outside to where it seems to bother my upper gums SOMETIMES, not very often but I can feel where a headache could be a problem.
I have read about possibly being a staph infection, but wouldn't it really hurt on the inside too? No blisters that I know of or can feel. Our insurance hasn't kicked in yet so I am not able to see a Dr. Has anyone else had a problem like this? Ughhh...so frustrating. Seems like things go on when there is no insurance! Thanks for your replies!
