Many: Dry nose and scabbing can be due to excessive picking at nose, allergies, bacterial infections, and others. Avoid picking the nose, use saline nasal sprays, humidification, a small amount of vaseline in the nose and consider the use of intranasal antibiotics. You may need to see your pcp or ENT for evaluation. Humidification, humidification, humidification is the answer. Lots of saline spray!
A 18-year-old male asked:

Inflammation: Most likely you have a condition called costochondritis. This is due to poor blood flow to the cartilage of the lower ribs. Correct your posture and you will get better. In the mean time, use some ice packs or hot packs and some anti-inflammatories as you are allowed and you should be better. If not, see your pcp.
A 32-year-old female asked:

Probable infection: I wold use some warm packs 15 minutes every hour and observe. If continues to be tender, or if there is heat or redness or pus, or fever or chills or a rash, then i would get seen urgently and get diagnosed and treated. I would refrain from any picking, sticking needles or such into the area or pressing on this area. Keep hands away from face. See pcp if concern.
