Painful Lump On My Nose
What can cause a very very painful lump inside of my nose on the left side what is this very painful lump inside the left side of my nose
Most : Most painful lumps that arise acutely (quickly) in the nose are infected hair follicles or skin infections. If it has been there for a while, it may be time to have it evaluated as you may require antibiotics. Sometimes, these lumps may develop into abscesses requiring drainage. Although extremely unlikely, tumors (benign and malignant) may arise in the nose and may cause pain. Most treatment depends on the location, duration, appearance, and severity of symptoms. If it is close to the opening of the nose (vestibule) and it has been quick to arise (and present for only a short time) - warm compresses and pain medication (advil and tylenol) may help, however, if the pain is severe, or it has continued to worsen, i would advise an exam immediately to be treated appropriately. ...Read more

I had a cold this past week that I'm just getting over. Now, I notice I have a little hard lump at the tip of my nose inside my right nostril. it's painful to touch but if left alone pain will go away, I'm worried what this could be?
An infection: I suspect that this is from a bacterial infection (likely staph) which was likely introduced when you picked or blow your nose when you had the cold. See your doctor who may Rx you a topical antibiotic ointment for the lesion. Although your body may eventually fight it off , it may also spread if left untreated. ...Read more
