The inside of my nostrils are red & seem swollen. I have what looks like ulcers inside too. 2.5 wks ago Dr said it was HSV -1,but I disagree. Causes?

Maybe still herpes: Your doctor may be right. Herpes could do this, especially if recently exposed and this is your first infection with HSV1. But recurrent herpes usually wouldn't last so long. If the doc suspected herpes, you should have been treated with an anti-HSV drug like valacyclovir; failure to improve would be against herpes. Maybe other virus? Staph or strep infection? Suggest you return to same doctor. ...Read more

How long do stomach ulcers take to heal. On medication but still very sore pain in my stomach when I eat?

Depends.: it depends on many factors, including the initial size of the ulcer, what medicine you're taking to heal it, whether H pylori is present, and what caused the ulcer in the first place. In general, however, if you're not starting to see some relief within 7 to 10 days of starting medication for a proven ulcer, I would call your doctor back. Good luck. ...Read more

I wear a c-pape machine and sometimes i get a sore on one or both sides of my mouth and my mask just covers my nose and my nose and my nose get dry like a plastic coating around my nostrils.What can I buy to help heal the sores and make my nose stop hurti

This : This is a common problem i see with patients who use a c-pap. The proper treatment depends a bit on the exact location and clinical observation so i would recommend you consult a dermatologist. Sometimes i recommend Hydrocortisone cream with a thin layer of zinc oxide paste over that to help reduce inflammation and irritation. Other cases, just a little bit of vaseline. I hope that helps. ...Read more
