sores in my nostrils that do not heal

I found this old thread but no responses! I need help NOW! Same as this quote, I have sores in my nostrils that do not heal and they block up the nasal passages so that sometimes I can hardly breathe! Occasionaly I will blow out a bloody scab and/or bloody mucus. Can anyone help me?

Re: Sjogren's and Nose sores/lesions

I use Bactroban twice daily when I get a bit crusty, right side bleeds sometimes, the stuff works quite well.
But it is not on our P.B.S. (Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme) so have to pay $20 each time for the tiny tube.
I might try vaseline as others say it works.
