    Question Blisters just inside the nose :-(

    Visited my PCP today and got an excellent report except when I mentioned a few small pimple/blisters (painless, nonetheless) just inside my left nostril - I had him stumped. He made me an appt with an ENT specialist for next week. Anyone had any experience with this type of thing?

    Many thanks

    Re: Blisters just inside the nose :-(

    I had some polyps in my nose when I was first diagnosed with allergies. I had a CT scan of my sinuses which showed it was sort of on the big side.

    With a combination of nasal spray and a 7-day course of prednisone (30mg/day), I was able to shrink them and they never re-appeared. That was back in 1997 or 98, so it's been a long time.

    Thanks Kszan, My PCP tells me that polyps are usually further up in the nose vs my symptoms just inside the nose!

    Oh well, ENT Doctor hopefully has seen this before and can do what needs to be done.

    Have a great weekend.

    Sometimes i get whiteheads around my nostrils usually outside, not sure if this could be the case. Ive heard that it is possible to get herpes in an around your nose.

    Your best bet is too see the ENT, goodluck.

    Thanks, these are just inside the nostril (looks like the hair follicles are raised up into a small white pimples) - but no pain, discharge, itching, etc! (That is what had my PCP stumped ) Don't look forward to seeing an ENT but who better to dx noses!! I guess I should add that my nose has not been anywhere it shouldn't have been!
