Rx nasal sores: You could try otc antibiotic ointment which could be applied 3 times daily but i'd recommend getting a checkup so that the sores can be visualized to rule out anything more serious than a simple nasal excoriation or abrasion. ...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

Dr. James Seward

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

Nose that won't seem to heal for years. What would be a good home remedy to stop the nasal bleeding?

Moisturization: A dry irritated nasal lining can be painful, result in stuffiness and bleed. This is generally more common during the dry winter months, assuming you live in an area where it gets cold and dry. You can use vaseline in small amounts, ayr saline gel or ponaris nasal emollient (you may have trouble finding it but ask your pharmacist)all intranasally. If no better, see an ENT doctor. ...Read more

Possibly: Possibly it could be an infection transmitted via contact but it could just be abrasion from multiple blowing the nose and wiping the nose. A medicated ointment would help. ...Read more
