The Inside Of My Nose Itches
Any advice? I have had this cough and mucus in my nose. And the inside of my nose itches. What could it be?
Allergies are common: Based on the few symptoms you mention, it is possible that allergies are causing your symptoms. As allergies - like to pollens, molds, animal dander or mites - often irritate and inflame the lining of the nose causing itching and nasal secretions, which can go 'backwards' into the back of the throat causing you to cough. You should seek help from your doctor about possible causes and treatments.
Infection: You should get checked it may be an infection of the skin or hair follicles of the nose.
My daughter (3yr) says her nose itches sometimes say it hurts and is constantly picking her nose due to it. What could it be and how to help her?
Allergies: This is very suspicious for allergies. Them you get into that vicious cycle of rubbing and irritating it, picking at it and irritating it more and on and on and on. If this is a year round problem, she may need to be on a nasal spray or allergy med. If seasonal (for me, when trees bloom in spring), try to avoid contact with the irritants. And be all means, keep her away from second hand smoke!See 2 more doctor answers
I have these "fits" I guess you can say where my nose itches a lot on the inside. It itches when I'm inside at school and at home. What could it be?
Allergic rhinitis: Itchy watery nose associated with sneezing is usually a symptom of allergic rhinitis. Make notes of when these symptoms occur, to help you identify what might be triggering it. Over the counter antihistamines (Zyrtec, Claritin) may help. Some people are very sensitive to fragrances and fumes, which is another cause.
My nose itches a lot as if something is irritating it. I have heard that if you have worms then your nose can itch. Is it true? Its weird. Please help

Histamine Release: What you are experiencing is not uncommon with opioids such as hydrocodone in vicodin, lortab and norco, codeine, morphine and similar meds. Certain patients do better with different drugs. A mild antihistamine like Phenergan (promethazine) can sometimes help with the itching and/or nausea which occur with opioids.See 1 more doctor answer
Allergies: Sounds like allergies, but for a proper diagnosis you need to see a doctor to get examined. They may be related to a cold also.
Allergy: To me it sounds like you have allergic rhinitis. The symptoms are very suggestive of that disorder. Your nose membranes can react to different types of substances called allergens. They cause swelling and redness and a lot of mucus. Pollens for instance are being attacked by your bodies immune system as harmful and causing a severe inflamation. Most of us have no problem.
Tear gas: Evacuate area immediately. If any tear gas contacted your skin, eyes or mucous membranes irrigate with tap water. Try not to rub eyes. If it was sprayed on your clothes, remove them and wash in machine. Sorry this happened to you. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!
