In brief: Eradicate Staph

Often people who get painful boils inside the nose have chronic colonization and periodic infection with staphylococcus bacteria.
This is quite common and usually easy to treat. See your pcp or a dermatologist and have the problem checked out. Usually, what is done is to apply antibacterial ointment (mupirocin) into the nostrils for 5 days. Good luck.
