See your doctor: While vaseline can help soothe scabs in your nose, you may require an actual treatment in order to get rid of them. Many people carry staph aureus bacteria in their nose. Others carry the herpes virus in their nose. Your doctor can culture the affected area to help you treat the scabs more effectively.See 1 more doctor answer
I have little scabs inside my nose that don't hurt when I touch them, but could they be cold sores? I don't get them there but have blown my nose a lot
I have a indent inside my nose on the cartilage if there is a scab over it will it get better or worse I use a lot of nose spray I'm scared its hole?
Don't worry: There is little cause for alarm. The key is to leave it alone, don't fuss with it, pick at it, or put anything into your nose, and it will likely be fine. Stay away from nasal decongestant sprays (and especially do not snort Cocaine or other drugs). See an ear nose and throat specialist if pain or bleeding occur.
I have flat, dry, & hard scab-like "boogers" that form only on my septum up inside my nose with horrible nasal passage congestion for months now. Help?
Dry nasal crusting: Greetings. Fancy words for "boogers". These episodes happen from xcessive dryness. Saline nasal spray and AYR gel may be the answer. Sleep with a humidifier and drink more water. If these suggestions fail to resolve the issues, see your ENT. An antibiotic covering Staph may be needed.
Inside my nose feels like I have ulcers or scabs & when I look inside I seem to have sores/ulcers. They're flat, whitish, & mucus is white/yellow. Dx?
Not possible to say: Without looking at them. Most likely local irritation and dryness, but you need to make sure it is not more serious condition. Show them to your doctor or ENT specialist just to be sure.
My mucous membrane just inside my nose scabs over and never heals. I can get the scab off which is thin but it comes back. Shouldn't this be biopsied?
See ENT: They are specialists and will be able to get you the best treatment and or tell you if the area needs to be biopsied.
I have cuts in my nose that won't heal. They scab over and are painful. Weird smell inside my nose sometimes too. Chest is tight and hard to breathe.?
Rhinitis: Use an otc topical antibiotic to treat skin cuts for no longer than 2 weeks --- the breathing issue needs further evaluation from a doctor.
See a PCP: There are several reasons for nasal lesions, most common are bacterial and viral infection. However, finding a proper diagnosis and treatment may be the best answer to your problem. See a PCP for examination, diagnosis and treatment options. Take good care.See 2 more doctor answers
Inside your nose: Hello, I think what you are seeing inside your nose are the structures called turbinates. They filter, warm and humidify the air that you breathe through your nose. These are normal structures. Check with your doctor for confirmation.
Scab picking: What do you expect? A scab is your body's way to stop bleeding. So removing a scab may lead to more bleeding. Try not to p;ick. Instead keep your nose moist with an ointment. If the problem persists, have your nose evaluated by a board certified otolaryngologist.
Don't try to pop it.: This is a danger zone - try warm compresses.
