    Painful spot at end of nose

    I've had this painful spot right at the end of my nose in the area between my nostrils. It comes and goes for no apparent reason and I was just curious as to whether anyone else has experienced this or knows what it is. It's in the area that's just forward of the spot between the nostrils. If I press on it, it really hurts! There's no bump or any physical manifestations.

    BTW, I don't have a cold and so I haven't been blowing my nose. So that wouldn't be a culprit. I've had this condition come and go many times. Now that it's returned, I thought I'd ask about it.

    If you don't have pain in your face or mouth or anywhere else in or around your nose...you should ask your doc for an xray to see if anything is going on there.
    Maybe ask for a swab in both nostrils to check for staph bacteria in your nose.

    hope you find out what it is,

    Thanks! I guess I'll have to try that.
