Bactroban (mupirocin): Agree with not manipulating the sore. However, i recommend bactroban (mupirocin) or Mupirocin ointment which requires a prescription to make sure staph aureus is treated. ...Read more

AlwaysGuessWork Why?: Because anti=against, bio=life, tic=thing are poisons, 8 groups known to date, which inhibit, sometimes kill certain living cells, while largely benign to human cells. They are routinely recommended (prescribed) based on guesswork given situation, body location, bacteria commonly present in location, prescriber experience, etc. thus never any guarantee of efficacy. Immune system is always primary. ...Read more

In my nose there is a sore. Two weeks ago the sore was small, now it has grown in size. I can feel the air moving weirdly in my nose due to this.

Go to your MD: It is best to see your doctor as it may be a folliculitis or an infection of the hair follicles. It is difficult to make such diagnosis here, and if it is an infection it has to be treated before it gets any worse. ...Read more

Pleurisy: The cold virus gave you a pleurisy. A condition called pleuritis or pleurisy is inflammation of the pleura (lining between the lung and the chest wall). It can be quite painful and worse with taking deep breaths as the lining rubs together. Anti-inflammatory medication can help relieve the pain, but sometimes it takes a while. ...Read more

A bit more time..: Not sure whether your main complaint was congestion (inability to breathe through the nose) or facial pain/pressure. I's not uncommon for a true sinusitis to take 3 weeks or even more to clear. Saline nasal rinse is always a good choice but if symptoms persist (or worsen) may be time to see your doctor or an ENT. ...Read more

Possible sinus issue: This may or may not be related to your tooth extraction. The upper wisdom teeth are in close proximity to the maxillary sinus so it is possible some blood drained into the sinus and eventually to your nose. Also, if you had general anesthesia during the extractions it is possible that the naso-tracheal tube irritated the nose tissues and caused some bleeding. I would consult with your dentist. ...Read more

Time will give answe: If this is from screaming, then in a few days it will be gone. If from a start of a URI,(cold), then it will take a little longer. ...Read more
