    What is this yellowish goo stuff in my nose?

    Hi when I was younger I used to get a lot of big pimples on my nose. Then one day they stopped but I had these bumps on my nose and when I squeezed them dirty yellow dry stuff would come out? I would squeeze them out until this seed looking thing came out of it. The other month I felt like I had these two bumps on my nose and I squeezed one of them and this hard yellow seed like thing came out and it was really hard but then I didn't have a bump. Now I only feel one bump but I am not sure if its the gooey stuff because nothing comes out when I squeeze it? Is it possible its that yellow stuff got stuck? I do remember squeezing it when I was younger and yellow dry stuff did come out but I dont remember ever getting a seed like thing out. I remember squeezing it out and then it just stop but i still have a bump...Can anyone help me? is it possible for yellow goo stuff to be trapped in my nose creating a bump? Any information will be appreciated.

    The gooey stuff is puss....puss is trapped white blood cells which are infected. The hard "seed" like thing you are talking about is puss which is congealed into a hard substance. And squeezing any of this out is going to do 2 things. One, it very well might give you scars....but more importantly, as you squeeze it out, you are spreading the infection from pore to pore- and causing additional breakouts.
    STOP squeezing. Go to the dermatologist for some prescription strength skin cleaner and ointment. At this point you are causing yourself more harm than good. Its critically important you keep your hands off your face and by squeezing these zits, you are trying to get the stuff out- but its backfiring and you are spreading the infection under the pores.
    Use warm compresses on your face. NOT SCALDING HOT, but warm....and use an antiseptic after you wash like a toner or sea breeze, something which will kill germs, without drying out your skin. The most important thing you can do right now is STOP squeezing and picking.....
    You really need to see a dermatologist. Youll probably need an antibiotic to get this under control for a short while...your skin is not only going through some hormonal changes, causing this to start, but you are making it worse by squeezing it and picking at it. Youll need to basically let everything heal on its own and to do that quickly, youll need prescription strength cleanser and treatment.

    Hi,

    Stop picking and sqeezing. that will spread infection.
    Use CLEARASIL which is skin coloured and medicated and will give the spots time to heal,

    Summer is the most difficult time for me because pimples tend to appear more. I also squeeze my pimples when they appear on my face and you know this squeezing is the main reason for spots. My friend suggested me to use raw aloe vera and it really worked for me.
