Re: Sores in nose
Glad you all know what I am talking about (and dealing with)
I have tried breathing in a vaporizer, the Neosporin....I am about ready to go to the doc! I got over TWO sets on my right nostril and now I am getting one on my left! UGH!
I just did some reading up and they could be impetigo; which is VERY contagious-so if you are sticking things in your nose (the neosporin, tip of your finger, lip balm) make sure you wash it off good after each use. (HA-after each use of picking your nose!) One of the medications used is Bactroban, (an anti-staph antibiotic) and sometimes that doesn't even work.
The other thing could be folliculitis. It's caused (like impetigo) by a Staph infection, but responds better to anti-staph anitbiotics.
The other possibility (which now that I think of it; I have heard before) is "herpes of the nose." From what I have read, if the sores are flared up right now, we are supposed to see an ENT so they can properly diagnose the sores. YIPPEE!
