Doctor insights on:
White Bumps Under Nose
Nasal Vestibulitis: This is not an uncommon problem. Just inside the nose, there are a number of small hairs called vibrissae. Because they are hair follicles that can get inflamed or infected and can be quite sore. Usually requires a prescription antibiotic ointment. You should see your doctor to make sure that's what it is and to get the right treatment.
Fibrous Papule: A fibrous papule develops during late adolescence or early adult life on the nose, or less often, elsewhere on the face. It is a dome shaped shiny lesion 2-6 mm in diameter, sometimes bearing a central hair. Although it looks similar to a skin-coloured mole (dermal naevus), it is more firm in texture. It is harmless but persists unchanged lifelong. See your dermatologist for removal.
Scab or fungus: Some people with dry noses will get large crusts that come out. Also patients with fungal balls in their sinuses will occasionally blow out a large chunk. If this happens repeatedly he should see an ent.
HypertrophicScarInf: It may be a hypertrophic scar like keloid, granuloma or allergic reaction to the nose ring if it contains Nickel. I suggest you get it checked by your Doctor and do not take it off till you see the doctor If infected may need local or oral antibiotics after cleaning and draining the bump by the doctor. Do not try to sqeeze or drain the bump. If it is a scar, granuloma or keloid. It can be handled later

Hi dr. My concern is my 4 month old baby nose it looks wide and the tip looks a bit push and he has like a bump in top of the tip s that normal?
Exam: This would need to be visualized to know.
Intranasal bump: Hello. It is hard to determine what to do about your problem because it's impossible for us to know exactly what your " bump" actually is. It could be an inferior septal spur, a polyp, a turbinate, a cyst, could be any number of possibilities. My point being; it is best to see your ENT physician who will determine exactly what you are referring to and what therapy is needed. Good luck.
Nothing serious: This is usually caused by blocked sweat glands or oil glands, and will usually go away without treatment. If it is looking inflamed or is painful, you should see your doctor.
Stop Picking!: Tiny bumps in the nose are common, and nearly all arise from one cause: picking. More precisely, excessive attention to nasal hygiene -- blowing the nose, cleaning it out with tissues, trying to remove all debris -- results in tiny scabs, forming over sore and healing areas, to be removed. This, then, keeps them from healing and eventually the body replaces the scab with scar: the bump!See 1 more doctor answer
