What could be causing a sore in my nose that won't go away?


Answer by  nerdgirl (78)

Constant exposure to dry air could cause a sore in your nose. I would suggest using a humidifier to moisten the air and see if it goes away.

You may have a staph infection. Put an over-the-counter antibiotic cream like Bacitracin on a Q-tip. Dab it on the sore twice daily, especially before bedtime.

I ditto the staph infection thought - but you can\'t get antibiotics OTC - you need to see your doctor and he will prescribe a nasal antibiotic ointment. I have just had one healed myself. Bacitracin won\'t make it go away.  add a comment

People need to stop throwing around "Cold Sore" as the answer to EVERYTHING! Go to your doc and have a culture done. Otherwise just use antibacterial ointment and keep the area clean. Do not pick at it, and be gentle when blowing your nose.

Could be a cold sore which spreads easily, do not pick the sore as when it bleeds the sore will spread.

If you have had a cold recently or have allergies it might have to do with your nose being raw from just being blown so much.

I have noticed that during the winter months the air in the house is dry. The more moisture in the air, the better your air passages are.

could be a resistant staph infection like MRSA or there are other types but mrsa causes sores that don't heal with many antibiotics.
