Chronic Sore In Right Nostril
0

24 posts in this topic

for I would say the last 6 weeks I have had this painful sore in my right nostril off and on. It's dry and caked in there (sorry- this is gross but what the hey- we've talked about worse stuff on here) and it bleeds when I try to remove any crust. But i can't see anything in there! even with a flashlight.

I don't have sores in my mouth or anywhere else, just the right nostril although the left nostril gets tender sometime. ????????? :huh:

Go see an ENT doc. Sores that don't heal can be carcenomas. I had one on my cheek several years ago that would almost heal and then break open again. It was a basil cell carcenoma. Got it cut out. No more problems.

Hi Bev--Getting it checked out is not a bad idea, but I get these from time to time. I'm not sure what causes it, but I will get exactly what you describe, usually in my right nostril. I do have a lot of nasal allergy problems, and blow my nose a lot at times. What I do if it's uncomfortable (and I think it helps it heal faster) is use a saline spray several times a day. Really spray a lot of it up in there--until it runs back out (don't inhale)--and do it over a sink! ;)

Ahh...nothing quite like nasal irrigation! I had my adenoids out and sinuses widened and I had to do salt water irrigations with a BULB SYRINGE!! Yuck!

I've gotten those on the inside of my nose before, too and they lasted forever. I figured it was an ingrown nasal hair or something, it eventually went away.

But until then, they hurt like hell! :ph34r:

I get them too, also an allergy sufferer. I know it sounds crazy, but I started putting carmex on one and it worked. Burns a little, bu heals it right up. I've done the saline thing too, but got better results from carmex. I figured if it worked so good on chapped lips it had to work on chapped other things! :P

Yes! Actually, I do the irrigation with the bulb, too. I make my own solution with warm water, salt and a pinch of baking soda. I use an ear syringe--is that what you use? Nothing clears out the old airway like a flush of salt water :D

Who's the little one in the picture?

Yes, about the ear syringe. Like the blue ones you use for babies. I did that exactly once, and it was so gross that I couldn't do it again. It was especially nasty because I had burned off pieces of skin and bone com out from the caudery work. Ewwww!!!

The little one is my littlest neice, in a rare cuddling moment :) It was taken at Christmas, in Syracuse, conicidentally :P

Hi Beverly, I've had these sores during very dry winters, and they lasted weeks....I used Neosporine, slathered it up there w/ a Q Tip every day and night, and they went away within days.

Hi, have you tried tea tree oil? I get sores in my nose and I use a few drops of olive oil and one drop of tea tree oil mixed in a cup. Dip a qtip in it and rub it all in your nose. It's quite stinky and may sting for a second but it'll clear it up in a day. Tea Tree oil is my magic cure for everything. Too bad it can't cure celiac!

I get those every so often when my seasonal sinus allergies are really acting up. I've used everything from saline, to neosporin, to carmex, to vaseline... I think vaseline worked the best for me... still very very freakin painful tho

Thanks everyone! I got some saline spray and moistirizing ointment today so I'm going to try that and see how it goes. I've tried Neosporin before too and it worked so I might give that another shot. If it doesn't clear up by Monday I will definitely get it checked out.

You should have seen me trying to look up my nose last night in the dark with a flashlight to see what was up there! i couldn't see anything, but my husband walked by and said, "I am not even going to ask!" :P

The Neosporin cleared it up nicely- you might want to try that. I hope you're not allergic to animals! That would be so sad. :(

:) Hi, yes, I get that lovely nose sore thing too, but have noticed that it usually coincides with allergies (dust, pollen), and anytime I accidentally eat something with milk products in it. One really weird thing (of many, many weird things :blink: ) I got one time was strep-NOSE!!! I had a bad case of flu and picked up a strep infection in my nose on top of it. I had blistery, sores that crusted over and the whole nose swelled up like a clown. Ugh. I agree you should probably get it checked out . Thank God you are all out there, I thought for years that I was just some mutant :)

My nasal membranes have been sore until just about the time I gave up milk products, now that I think about it.

If you think the grooming is causing it, try wearing one of those face masks you can get at the hardware store.

I never got those sores until I tried Nasacort for my allergies. Now I get them all the time, so I quit using the Nasacort. I use antibiotic cream and warm salt water for them. Clean them and cream them!

I know this is an old post, but if you're reading...I get these too...always figured it was related to seasonal allergies. It hurts to even touch your nose or blow it and they last several weeks. I found an OTC saline GEL that you can put on it with a q-tip. It keeps it moisturized much longer than saline spray and it's so convenient and comfortable. Also, I was told never ever to use vaseline in the nose because you could accidentally aspirate it into your lungs...probably the same for carmex. I used to use vaseline until I heard this and the gel works just as good, but safer.

    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy.
