Can you suggest a home remedy is good for a bleeding scab inside the nose?

Nose sore: First try to moisten it with a little vaseline or petroleum-based ointment. Vaseline works nicely and there isn't any antibiotic or other drug to which to have a possible reaction. Then, use some saline. For you, I would recommend trying the new saline gel that several companies make. Apply the vaseline twice a day to the affected area and use the saline at least four times a day. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

In such which case you would need to have an appointment for evaluation and a possible a prescription for something like mupirocin (an antibiotic) ointment. ...Read more

Possibly, slightly: Adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) has some mild nose-drying (diminishing secretions) tendencies, but the other medicines don't especially. But it would be most useful to review this with your prescribing doctor, since you are getting some annoying symptons. ...Read more

Recent nose pierce. Bump beside it. Popped it. Now became a red, bloody boil with large, dark, protruding scab covering for three weeks that won't heal?

Scab: If all the redness has subsided and there is no longer active inflammation, nature will eventually remove the scab. I don't recommend your removing as it is a protective structure. However if there are signs of continuing skin infection such as redness tenderness, pus drainage, you must seek medical attention by a physician as infections in this area of the face require proper and prompt treatment ...Read more
