How can you prevent a scab developing on the inside of your nose? I have been getting these ever since I was little and it hurts to touch your nose.

Moisturize: Using nasal saline gel may help moisturize the area enough that the nasal mucosa heals. At times, these sores are perpetuated by bacterial infection and resolve quickly with topical antibiotic creams. Try to keep it moist and if that doesn't work, see your doctor. ...Read more
