Re: recurring sore in right nostril
Where exactly is the sore? Have you been inhaling anything prior to the sore happening (such as nasal sprays, corticosteroids, etc)?
Sometimes air changes/heat/air conditioning can cause nasal sores not to heal.
Did you have a cold or flu during when you got the sore?
Have you gone to the doctor about it to have it tested (for fungal/bacterial/herpes)?
I have a dry area in my nose that has plagued me forever. It's not a coldsore that I know.....I've gone to specialists who say it's because the septum is deviated somewhat that the air I breathe in is constantly going over that area. It gets extra skin over it and I have to "peel" it off on occasion. It's not mucous.....it's skin -- very ticked off that picking my nose skin has become a ritual because it becomes loose when blowing my nose.
I found that using Vicks keeps that area moist and heals it well. I use it at night, and in the morning....it looks much better. I've tried all sorts of medications, none of which work (cortisone, fucidin, antifungal, zovirax....)
Probably best to see a doc to make sure it's nothing serious. Hopefully it won't last long for you.
It's all a matter of perspective!
