Conditions with symptom: 'inflamed nose'
After a considerable amount of acne on my nose, I began scratching it and squeezing it to remove spots, which has left my nose very red and inflamed. I thought that it would go away in a few months, but the redness is still there after about a year, and it is confined solely to my nose. I do not believe that there is any significant swelling or thickening of the skin on the nose, and if there is it is very small. I have no idea what I am suffering from, and it is very embarrassing; what is my condition, and how do you alleviate or stop it?
hi ive had a burning inner nose for four weeks now it gets worse when i eat or smoke also i can feel it at the back of my nose going down the throat my nose feels like its closing my doctors said its slightly inflamed but havnt been given anything and its getting worse thanku
I have developed a swolen spot on the inside of my nose, so I have been trying to research about it and it sounds like it could be a staph infection. However it does not seem as inflamed, sore or red as other reports. I am unsure of how it was caused and I am also unsure of how to treat it. HELP !
Hi there as like a lot of young people I have enjoyed a few years partying however my nose has really taken a beating and I think the bridge in my nose has started to erode away on one side and the cartilage in my nose feels as if it's dropped on one side, unless I told you about my nose problem you probably wouldn't notice it if you met me but me knowing about it and feeling the pain of it, it constantly plays on my mind.. What so I do?
This past January I had a septal button put into my nose, because I had a very large hole in my nasal septum from a previous surgery I had when I was little. Just recently, the right side of my nose has been sore and swollen and making the right side of my mouth to hurt. It hurts to blow my nose, eat or even smile. What should I do and why is my nose hurting this much since my surgery?
I am 14 and I have suffered from red inflamed spots on my forehead for about 8 - 10 months and they itch and when I put spot cream from my GP on the inflamed area the spots bulge and get reeder. How can I get rid of the acne?
If you have long hair, keep it off your forehead as much as possible AND DO NOT POP THEM! Wash your face twice daily, cut out all junk food and sugary drinks and drink plenty of water. Don't get stressed :) I used to have loads of spots on my face and body but, after a few months of switching up my diet and routine, I only have a few small bacne scars.
How do I get rid of my red bump under my nose stud? I got my nose pierced about 7 weeks ago and since wearing make up again on my nose I found I had a puss filled spot I stupidly squeezed it and did sea salt compressions plus savlon liquid and now it's turned into a red lump that looks horrible!!
bumps with a nose piercing are quite often i always use only salt water to clean my piercings due to some cleaning products actually making things worse. i would go back to the piercer and also see your gp if things get worse

Hi. Since I was pregnant with my first child i got blocked nose and started making horrible noises when sleep - not snoring. It's nearly 5 years now and I'm expecting my third baby and my nose gone even worst. Noises are bad and my husband has to sleep in the other room, I get really blocked with runny, clear stuff from my nose. Every morning wake up with head aches and some time when blow my nose my eye starts running. Please help. I'm really tired and desperate for help. Been to doctor and got told that because of pregnancy he can't help me. I don't drink or smoke.
Hello, I'm not sure if I have nasal polyps, but when I look up my nose I have what look like swellings up each nostril, one worse than the other at the moment but can change, they look fleshy, red and I can't feel them but I can never breathe properly out my nose and when I do have a look the passage down my nose is mostly all closed up, it was only when someone else looked I realised it wasn't right! Recently also I've noticed blood coming from them, not enough to worry about but I wondered if anyone else had the same problem? I have been to the doctors who just looked in my ears and gave me drops? Also recently bought more sprays for my nose but I don't notice any difference really! I'd have an op on this like I've seen comments have done! But the thought of being awake and having it I just don't think I could go through it! Any advice or anyone have the same problem!!!!
You probably have swollen turbinates. I have the same problem. They are fleshy coloured balls that when inflamed you can see yourself by shining a torch etc up your nostril. I've had two operations on mine and I'm still struggling to breathe propperly even now, 2 years later. It all makes you very depressed as not a lot of people appreciate you breathe 24/7, any continual problems really impact quality of life. You need to ask your gp to refer to you to an ENT consultant. I was misdiagnosed by my gp for 8 months and my ENT, although trying hasn't managed to fix my problem.
