Sore Nasal Like Chapped
The piece between nasal passage and throught is sore before and after bed but fine in the day. What medicine should I take?

See your primary care, make sure your glands aren't a sign of something serious. ...Read more

Bactroban (mupirocin) may help. However, you should also speak with your doctor about the possibility of herpes, which is an entirely different problem. ...Read more
