Sores on inside of nose

Hello, this is my first time posting on here and its good to know a board like this exists. I have one sore on the inside of my nose about on the edge and it kills. I posted it under Herpes because I'm pretty sure its it. Its a really annoying pain thats there when I'm trying not to think about it. But when I touch it, even though I shouldn't, it hurts. Is there anything I could do with treatments. I read to put ice on it for a couple of mins every hour or so to make the size of it go away. Any help would be greatful, thank you.

-Bill

Re: Sores on inside of nose

Hey Bill...
Are you positive its herpes? Im not a doctor or anything but I have never heard of anyone having herpes anywhere but in the mouth, on the lips or in the genital area. You should probably go see a doctor to make sure and they can prescribe something that would make it go away for good depending on what is it. Hope this helps.

Re: Sores on inside of nose

Iam nor a doctor either but I think that I have had that problem before and here is how I handled it.

1) DON'T PICK IT, if it can't be blown out leave it there, I know sometimes you get bord and stuff but it is like a scab there foe protection. At least it was liek that for me because after I picked it it would hurt and air would bother it.

2) E OIL!!!!!!! i would take a q-tip and apply it a few times a day especially in the morning and before I went to sleep.This was the main thing that I helped me. Now I don't know what the problem was 100% but I have ny suspicions and this is what helped me and I really have not had as big a problem with it since then.

Lemmie know how it worrk out..

You can get herpes there but there are a whole lot of other things it could be, most notably, either an infected hair follicle or a bacterial infection. It would be a very good idea to see a dr.

Anna, thank you, I'll give the E Oil a try and get back. Also, how long did it last? I'm only on like day two or three and it kills.
