I have a small hard white bump on the inside of my nose. What could if be!

Nose Knows

Epiglottitis
Does it hurt? Is there surrounding redness? have you had any trauma to the nose? It you have no other symptoms, it could just be a prominent medial crural footplate (nasal cartilage). If it hurts, drains pus or gets bigger, you may want to get it checked out by an ENT doctor. Importantly, don't mess with it. If it is a normal structure, manipulation with your finger can lead to an infection

I have 2 clear fluid filled bumps at the top of my throat with little white spots in them. Also I have been having sticky hard nose discharge.

It sounds like

Neck-throat
You have sinusitis with a post nasal drip. You may need a round of antibiotics but Flonase, generic, is a nasal steroid that, if used at night, turns post nasal drip into an antiinflammatory gruel. It could be viral allergies or even bacterial so I would go in but Flonase is cheap, safe, highly effective and good to have around, good luck.

I have sores on the cartilage in my nose. Sometimes theres no pain but there's always hard tissue (bumps) that I can't remove, which are white. Ideas?

Vestibulitis

Open-uri20130524-6559-tvvvro
Can be associated with a dry nose, picking at the area, or using Q-tips inside the nose. You can get a low grade bacterial colonization of the hairs inside the nasal skin(vestibule). This creates a chronic irritation, crustiness, and sometimes clear discharge with occasional blood in it. See an ENT for treatment, usually ointments and antibiotics. However, other problems need to be ruled out.

My 2 month old son has a white bump on the center of his tongue, what could this bump be? he sleeps with mouth open and has a stuffy nose.

Needs to be seen

More important that what it could be, is what it is. Unfortunately, this would have to be seen by a dentist, preferably a Pedodontist, or Pediatrician in person in order to give you an accurate answer. Call for an appointment.

This type of bump is usually a benign condition, such as a skin tag or blocked oil gland. An eye doctor or dermatologist can evaluate it for you and offer treatment options.

Dr. Jason D. Bloom answered:

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

Follicle
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.

I have a white bump on the inside of lower eyelid close to the nose. It is causing my eye to swell down to the cheek bone and waking up with that eye matted shut. After a hot shower the eye waters for hours. What could be the cause? And what to do about i

Eye

Open-uri20120918-535-o2gmtt
This could be a plugged up eyelid gland, either a sweat gland (sty) or oil gland ( chalazion). The usual treatment for both is hot packs applied to the site. If not better with that in a few days or if there is redness to the eye and/or discharge, you should get it checked by a doctor.

Nothing serious

This is usually caused by blocked sweat glands or oil glands, and will usually go away without treatment. If it is looking inflamed or is painful, you should see your doctor.

Milia

White bumps in that location are often a skin condition called milia. Seeing a dermatologist would be a good idea to confirm diagnosis and discuss treatment options.
