There is a large pimples on my nose by the side. I tried popping it but now I just have a massive headache. Did the pimple cause it?

Tricky: Cannot say in your particular case, but generally, use of the hands at or above shoulder height can cause neck spasm that can cause headache (int he back of the head). tension typically gives headache around or just above the eyes, as can eye strain if one were looking into the mirror to do something on the face (makes one's eyes cross thinking about it). ...Read more

Pimple: I am not aware of any deaths caused by popping pimples in your nose. The internet is full of bad medical advice. We typically suggest you don't squeeze pimples because of the trauma and scarring that can occur. However, realising how painful these can be, do what you need to do. I trust San Rafael is wonderful used to live there as a youth. ...Read more

Popped pimple inside nose and started bleeding. In "Triangle of Death" what should I do. Should I be worried?

Popped pimple inside nose and started bleeding. In "Triangle of Death" what should I do. Should I be worried?

Don't worry: Have you been watching Dr Oz??? Anyways, don't worry. The fact that it started bleeding probably reduces your risk of infection rather than increase it, because the blood "washes" bacteria away from the break in the nasal passage. If your nostril starts to get sore or swell, turn red or any other sign of infection, then get on antibiotics right away. Just watch for signs of infection. ...Read more

Having nosebleeds every 3rd day, pimple like object inside nose. Had same thing in 2011. What could cause these?

Periodic nosebleeds: Possible staph aureus colonization and bleeding from site of infection. Are you bleeding or bruising anywhere else? If not unlikely true bleeding problem. Pimple makes me think something more local/infectious. ...Read more

Nose: You should not squeeze things on your face because it in many instance creates more trauma that causes more swelling. Please try to stop squeezing these areas and see a dermatologist who has aestheticians. ...Read more

Nasal bump: Hello, it would be a helpful to stop trying to "pop" your nasal lesion. If it is or was a pustule, your manipulation will cause a cellulitis to develop around the lesion thus preventing it from resolving. See your doctor because it may need to be treated with an antibiotic. ...Read more

See doctor: It is not feasible to be sure, but what you described suggests a keratoacanthoma, a benign tumor. It would be prudent to see your doctor, (you should have one under the Canadian healthcare). Request referral to a plastic surgeon for removal and examination of the tissue by a pathologist. ...Read more

Leave it alone: Keep it clean and don't pop it any further. When you pop a pimple, you may drive infection deeper in the skin or increase the chance of scarring.

Use a acne med and a good sunscreen (irritated skin or acne-medicated skin can be more sensitive to sun damage). ...Read more
