I woke up today and the tip of my nose, actually just to the left, is very sore to the touch. No cold or flu or any redness I am aware of.

Folliculitis: Some times the hairs in your nose get infected. Maybe you picked your nose or picked some nose hairs. Use Bacitracin ointment on the inside or your nose this is inside right? If it is outside then it is likely a zit (acne). If it is not better in a few days you will need antibiotics active against staphylococcus, which is the most common infection at this location. ...Read more

Hi, Yesterday u woke up with a sore to touch pain on the bridge of my nose, there is also an ever so slight bit of redness. What is this? ThanksX

Pain on the bridge of my nose,: Most probably you are in the process of developing an infection, Pain, swelling, and redness are the typical combination of signs of an infection.
Did you pick into your nose,, did you had a recent trauma, or a cold, or any sinusitis?
I would take antibiotics. Like Amoxicillin 500 mg. twice a day for 7 days, and Aleve (naproxen) for pain.
If you do not get better, please let me know. ...Read more

I have 2 cysts on my nose and 1on my chin, all of them under the surface of the skin, there tender, sore and redness around area. Do I have infection?

Cystic acne: Cystic acne lesions commonly occur on the face in these areas. If you catch them early enough and don't squeeze them, I've found that applying OTC hydrocortisone cream can be helpful to reduce inflammation. Bacteria and hormone changes are factors. Oral or topical antibiotics, retinoids, oral contraceptives and/or Spironolactone can be effective. Steroid injections into the cysts can help also. ...Read more

Herpes? Impetigo?: This could be a herpes outbreak (cold sore, fever blister). Or maybe impetigo, a superficial infection with strep or staph bacteria, either of which might need an antibiotic prescription. See a doctor ASAP for diagnosis and treatment, the sooner the better for accurate diagnosis, and for effective treatment if it's herpes. ...Read more

No short answer: Herpes simplex virus can cause ulcers of the lips, mouth and throat and/or the genital area. It is infectious. It is usually recurrent & be quite painful. Your physician can get a test to make sure that is it and there is a medication that will help.
Another possibility is strep throat, which is a bacterial infection, if not treated it can lead to heart valvular problems.

Sore & painful throat with redness, nose drainage, and clear/yellow mucus with streaks of blood? Sinuses maybe? Smoker (ciggs)

Bad cold??: How long have you had these problems? Sounds like there is a lot draining gown your throat as well. Do you have fever? Body aches!? Do your upper teeth hurt? If you have been sick longer than 10-14 days you should see your dr as you might have developed a sinus infection . Use a cool mist humidifier in your bedroom, try not to blow, keep you nose moist with saline spray . Mucinex (guaifenesin) helps too. ...Read more

Hi. I've been having persistent swelling, zits, etc. On the tip of my nose for about 5 months. They start out as a pinch type feeling then grow and usually come to a head inside the nostril. Skin gets very red and sore. Very annoying. Can you help?

These : These are probably small cysts or inflamed follicles in the nose (sort of like acne in the nose). This could be a manifestation of harboring a bacteria in the nose that is inflaming the follicles. I would recommend polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin) ointment for a week or so to the area. If not improved soon, consider a visit to a dermatologist who might perform a culture of the area and maybe prescribe an antibiotic. ...Read more
