Angry recurring sore in right nostril

This has been bothering me for nearly two months. It goes away for a day or two but comes back with a vengeance; sometimes it bleeds. What the heck is it?

Re: recurring sore in right nostril

That happens to me sometimes...I always think that it is a pimple that goes bonkers. I agree that it hurts like heck and can sometimes bleed. But if you are really worried, go see a doctor. A little embarrassing, but then you'll know for sure.

Re: recurring sore in right nostril


Where exactly is the sore? Have you been inhaling anything prior to the sore happening (such as nasal sprays, corticosteroids, etc)?

Sometimes air changes/heat/air conditioning can cause nasal sores not to heal.

Did you have a cold or flu during when you got the sore?

Have you gone to the doctor about it to have it tested (for fungal/bacterial/herpes)?

I have a dry area in my nose that has plagued me forever. It's not a coldsore that I know.....I've gone to specialists who say it's because the septum is deviated somewhat that the air I breathe in is constantly going over that area. It gets extra skin over it and I have to "peel" it off on occasion. It's not's skin -- very ticked off that picking my nose skin has become a ritual because it becomes loose when blowing my nose.

I found that using Vicks keeps that area moist and heals it well. I use it at night, and in the looks much better. I've tried all sorts of medications, none of which work (cortisone, fucidin, antifungal, zovirax....)

Probably best to see a doc to make sure it's nothing serious. Hopefully it won't last long for you.

It's all a matter of perspective!
