Can vasoline help scabs inside my nose?

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.

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

Nasal Vestibulitis: Crusting in nostrils where nasal hairs are located is common and can be treated with topical antibiotic ointment. Blowing your nose a lot with tissue papers can cause direct irritation to skin and is not recommended. See an ENT doctor!

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?

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.

What is causing scabbing sores in my nose?

Staph: Probably a superficial staph infection. I would try some Bacitracin ointment inside your nostril several times today and see if that makes it better. If not you may want to see an ENT doctor.

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.
