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

Hour do I get rid of the redness around my pimple on my nose without using medications over night ?

Cover up: Although some lasers such as ipl may work that is probably excessive. Your best way to get rid of the redness is to conceal it. The redness is due to the inflammatory process which takes place over a 48-72 hour period. Salicylic acid may help but it is a medication and you do not want to use these per your request. ...Read more

I  always have redness around my nose. Sometimes pimples or dryness. I often feel itchy in the area. What can I do?

Acne: Don't wash your face with body soap. Also don't use alcohol or comedogenic products on your face. Try to find an acne wash system like neutrogena, pangeaorganics or something with benzoyl peroxide. Following low sodium diet might help too, since acne-causing bacteria like salt. You can try to prevent spreading bacteria onto your face by not touching your face, washing your phone, etc. ...Read more

Worth getting seen: We can't diagnose you at a distance, but this is worth discussing with your physician, now if it is new, or at your regular appointment if it is not.
