In brief: Nasal vestibulitis

An infection of the lining of the nose can make it feel raw and bleed a bit.
Use of nasal sprays sometimes causes these symptoms as well. The treatment is usually a prescription nasal ointment, mupirocin, and sometimes an antibiotic like doxycycline. Sometimes the infection is mrsa, (methicillin resistant staph aureus) which can be serious, and contagious.
