I have "kernels" inside my nose that are extremely painful. These bumps are in between the skin and never come to a head. They make it hard to breathe?

Nasal Vestibulitis: If these "kernels" occur right around the nostril openings, it can be a small infection of the nostril hair follicles called nasal vestibulitis. These can be painful and tender bumps from an infected hair follicle. The best treatment and prevention for this is to try bactroban or Mupirocin 2% ointment in the nostrils two to three times a day. ...Read more

Blocked gland?: A sebaceous cyst is a collection of oily fluid that occurs when an oil gland is blocked. Some folks are more prone to them than other and they often appear on the neck, shoulders, and back. Try to avoid skin products that are oily. I would also stay away from transfats and bad oils, which is good for overall health. See doctor for diagnosis. It may be something else. Peace and good health. ...Read more
