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.

    • After doing some research, apparently there is a connection between Celiac Disease and sex drive. Here are just a couple of links I found: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnGq_Vz6TuE   http://www.naturalnews.com/037361_sex_bread_gluten.html
    • This article, and the comments below, may be helpful: https://www.celiac.com/articles/21721/1/How-Celiacs-can-Deal-with-Accidental-Gluten-Ingestion/Page1.html
    • Long ignored and dismissed as unscientific and crude, are intestinal worms destined to be the future of autoimmune disease treatments? Hookworms. Intestinal parasites. They sound gross. The thought of having one's gut infected with a parasitic worm generally makes people's skin crawl. Indeed, intestinal worms, like hookworm, have a bad reputation among health experts, and have been the subject of fierce public health campaigns seeking their eradication. However, researchers have also documented the gut healing abilities of parasites like hookworm. View the full article
    • well, we're in sort of similar positions but can l ask what made you go gluten-free 3 years ago?   You've kept the diet for quite some time so where the health problems serious? at the time was seeking testing not an option? For myself, l absolutely tried everything to gain weight after losing January 2017. By April/May l started wondering how on earth l could be eating : regular meals, Boost shakes, fast food and sodas and candy all day, pretty much daily and still be losing. Some of these meals at home were pasta packed which, at the time l really thought goulash and cans of chef Boyardeee would help me gain     And years of headaches, brain fog that l didnt know what to attribute to but never suspected celiac until the weight loss, and legs and feet that hurt constantly (l didnt really know this could be due to gluten but it relived after being gluten free).   l am only about 2 months in, l did take a really basic TTG ia test after getting a response that my GI would test ''at some point'' and not being clear when that was, and very tired of being 97 pounds and scared of losing more!   so l now also have to wait to be tested more extensively, but l have gained some weight  and gave noticed some changes.    Did you have any improvements after going gluten free? If the test l did take had just been a clear ''no'', l dont  know how motivated l would have been to do this. It wasn't a clear yes, either, but designed like a drug or pregnancy test so the weak red line  does signify at least some sensitivity.   Typically the longer you wait, if in fact you are sensitive or even have celiac disease, the harder the challenge may be so l can understand the anxiety. l am planning for about 6 months. l could not handle going back on a gluten containing diet with my current job as well, and especially not during holiday retail season!   l would start very slowly. Is your new job going to be stressful? You might want to get a feel for the environment first and how you're going to deal with it on days when you might be feeling like utter crap >.> A headache that feels like a band around the back of my head and eye pressure was something l dealt with on my bad days before being gluten-free. It's not easy to function and when l did, l wasnt a nice person or very efficient.   You can start slowly, and please font be too concerned about fitting all of your challenge into six weeks, IMO. l wouldnt think of it as just a short term binge. Yes, you want to get it over with, but if you really fall apart and dont think you can even consume gluten daily, maybe try to do what you are able to do and if the time period gets stretched to 8 weeks or maybe more don't panic.   it should be difficult at first and even a shock to your system, but  even though you will likely not feel well the entire time you're challenging to retest, maybe by a few weeks in the symptoms will be slightly less severe and you can find ways to ease them. Any meds that you have taken like nsaids, a steroid, even Flonase helped me but l really dislike the side effects.   If the process in general with doctors and asking about this also gives you anxiety l would really recommend the walkinlabs recommended here. After 6-8 weeks, order (around 300 so plan for it financially). That will be your answer, make sure you have truly waited enough time to be properly tested and order the most extensive tests.    It's not something you want to have to repeat but l know l am not looking forward to it either! You will have your answer though, which, even if negative will be satisfying.
    • I can not add anything else, but I hope you feel better fast!
