Causes of sores in the nose
Doctors name several main reasons for the appearance of sores in the nose.
- Inflamed nasal mucosa. The cause of this may be severe or prolonged runny nose. Most often, wounds occur after sinusitis and sinusitis;
- Also, abrasions can occur due to trauma to the nose (for example, a strong blow or bruise) or due to the constant habit of picking the nose;
- Herpes can also affect the nasal cavity. The resulting pimples burst, liquid is constantly released from them, which does not allow the wounds to heal;
- Also, sores can occur due to hypothermia, severe stress, infection brought into the nose with dirty fingers, some chronic diseases or due to weak immunity;
Another reason may be constant purulent discharge, for example, due to sinusitis. Then an inflammatory process occurs in the nose with the formation of wounds. Different causes of sores mean different approaches to treatment and prevention. After all, the method of treatment depends on the cause.
Why doesn't the wound in my nose heal?
Nobody likes to get sick, especially if the illness is protracted and bothers you for a long time. So, if a wound in the nose does not heal, it brings terrible discomfort to the person. And as you know, any of our physiological ailments always affect our psychological well-being. Pain not only interferes, but can also literally put a person into a state of stress or apathy. And all thoughts only come down to how to quickly get rid of unpleasant sensations and regain the joy of life.
Wounds in the nose can manifest themselves as annoying itching, acute and aching pain, and bleeding. By the way, the latter can easily complicate breathing, so such wounds should never be opened. This can provoke not only suppuration and prolonged healing, but also cause serious complications, as a result of which other tissues near the nasal passage may also suffer.
reasons for the appearance
As a rule, scratches on the nose occur due to frequent picking. The mucous membranes in that area are very sensitive, and the blood vessels are located very close to the surface. This is why even a fingernail can easily damage the skin. Another common cause is herpes. Due to weakened immunity and fatigue, this disease can easily find a place in the nose. The result will be a slight burning sensation and a desire to constantly scratch your nose. Or the hair cuticles may become inflamed, which is where wounds begin to appear that cause anxiety to the person.
Whatever the reasons for the occurrence of such mornings, doctors note that they should not be started. Without proper care and treatment, they can take a very long time to heal. After all, we constantly inhale air through our nose, so the place of pain will be constantly injured. In addition, a runny nose may worsen the situation. As a result, the scratches will not be able to heal and will bleed constantly. And this will become an excellent breeding ground for infectious and fungal diseases. Doctors warn that such wounds must be treated!
Return to zmistMethods for treating damage to the nose
So, let's start with the fact that methods of treatment and assistance can be either modern medications or traditional ones. This is what our grandparents call inhalation an effective way, especially if it is based on herbal infusions. However, this method is suitable if the wound has already begun to heal. Otherwise, inhalation simply will not allow a crust to form, and the scratch itself will constantly get wet. It is better to resort to inhalations at the final stage of treatment. They can be done several times a day.
If we are talking about herpes, then a folk remedy is the usual seasoning - cloves. A good housewife always has it in her kitchen. Simply take the cloves into your mouth and chew thoroughly for five minutes.
And, of course, a good effect can be achieved using various types of oils. Healing agents include oils based on tea tree, calendula, vitamin E or aloe vera. But keep in mind that such products are only used for shallow cuts or scrapes. Otherwise, their use is basically useless and is unlikely to help rapid healing.
However, not all of us easily trust traditional methods. A wound in the nose can also be cured with the help of traditional medicines purchased at the pharmacy. So, a powerful and proven antibacterial or antifungal cream. However, this “heavy artillery” should be brought into battle only in one single case, when the nose does not heal for more than a couple of weeks, constantly itches, causes pain, or bleeds with enviable consistency. By this time, you have already tried treatment with healing gels or creams.
The main danger of such antibacterial ointments is that they have a strong effect on the entire nasal mucosa and can inadvertently cause harm. It is for this reason that such creams must be applied especially carefully and exclusively to the area of the cut or scratch. In addition, such ointments can cause a runny nose. If, however, the ointment begins to burn strongly or causes mucus to appear, immediately blot the application area with a napkin. But it is advisable that the cream stay on the wound for at least 15 minutes. It should be applied twice a day, morning and evening. And after a couple of days you can expect healing.
By the way, you can speed up the healing process of wounds by not disturbing them again. After a crust appears at the site of the injury, it begins to cause constant discomfort to the person. My hands are itching to push off the crust that has formed. It gets in the way, makes it difficult to breathe and constantly reminds you of itself with a slight itch. However, you cannot touch it. After all, this is how the skin underneath is regenerated and restored, and the crust protects it from germs and various types of infections.
But if you have no strength to endure and the crust has become quite hard and durable, then you can moisturize it with the most ordinary cream. This will make it more elastic and will not tighten the skin underneath too much. To apply this moisturizer, simply dip a cotton swab in it and gently wipe the wound area with it.
Return to zmystWe provide emergency assistance
It happens that the cut in the nose is too deep, resulting in bleeding.
In this case, before applying any healing ointments, wash your hands first to avoid infection. Then soak a cotton swab or a napkin rolled into a rope in warm water and thoroughly clean the wound. It is necessary to remove blood clots, mucus and rinse the area before using ointments. If you need to remove something extra from your nose, use tweezers. It is advisable to treat it before use. With such manipulations it will be possible to avoid inflammation of the wound in the nose and the introduction of dirt or dust particles there.
By the way, if the bleeding from the cut does not stop, press firmly on the area with a napkin or cotton swab. If it is not easy to get to the wound (for example, it is located deep in the nose), then you can pinch the outside of your nose for thirty seconds to stop the bleeding, or still try to get to the cut with a cotton swab, but be careful.
Return to zmistWhen you can’t do without a doctor?
As a rule, wounds in the nose heal without professional medical care. And even if it takes more than a week, most of us do not consider such cuts to be something supernatural and require medical knowledge. In general, this is how it is. However, you should not self-medicate if you notice that, despite all efforts, the wound has not healed for two weeks, as before, it causes acute pain and bleeds. In this case, it makes sense to consult a doctor. After all, here we can talk about some other disease that manifests itself like this.
Another case is an increase in temperature. If, along with a cut in the nose, your body temperature suddenly rises, then there is cause for concern. Perhaps suppuration or inflammation has begun, as evidenced by the fever. The doctor will be able to tell you exactly what to do in this situation and prescribe prescription medications. Well, and finally, do not hesitate to go to the hospital if we are talking about a small child. It's better to play it safe and show it to a doctor. Let him tell you how serious the cut in your nose is and how to treat it. After all, not all creams and ointments are suitable for a child’s body.
The nasal mucosa is an area in the human body where any careless touch can cause harm. Therefore, it is once again better not to disturb the nasal passage in order to avoid injury to it. After all, it will take a lot of time for wounds to heal, because they are located in an inconvenient place to access.
How can you help a patient?
If the wounds and abrasions are small and arose due to severe rhinitis, then their treatment can be successfully carried out at home. How to deal with sores in the nose:
- The best remedy is ointment: tetracycline, zinc, oxolinic and streptomycin.
- You can also use various antiseptic solutions that prevent the development of infection in the nose and the wounds heal faster.
- If a boil appears in the nose, then more serious treatment is required. An antibiotic is also prescribed in addition to the antibacterial ointment. You can also use anti-inflammatory drugs. If this does not help, then laser therapy is recommended to the patient. At the same time, you still need to take care of strengthening your own immunity.
- It makes no sense to treat sores that have formed as a result of frequent purulent discharge separately. Here complex therapy is already needed. But to make wounds heal faster, you can make herbal lotions and lubricate abrasions with antiseptic ointments. Cotton balls soaked in a trypsin solution will help soften the crusts.
Strong immunity, cream and herbal infusions will help you get rid of itching and pain in the nose.
Some believe that the use of folk remedies for any treatment is unacceptable, but in private cases you can resort to decoctions and ointments from natural ingredients - of course, if there is no suspicion of a more serious disease.
Inhalation of herbal tinctures has long been considered the most effective way to speed up the healing of wounds in the nose several times over. The only negative is that it can only be done if the wounds have already gradually begun to heal, otherwise the scratch will simply constantly get wet and will not heal normally. That is why modern experts recommend resorting to inhalations carefully, preferably at the final stages of treatment.
How to treat herpes at home? You can use regular cloves for this. Shallow scratches can be treated with the following oils:
- tea tree;
- aloe vera;
If the wound in the nose does not heal for more than a month or bleeds too much, this method is not used - oils practically cannot cope with serious damage.
Another popular method that allows you to quickly heal wounds on the mucous membrane is to simply not touch them. No matter how stupid it may sound, the advice is really relevant, because people, even after they find a scratch, continue to touch it with dirty hands, constantly disturb it, which is why it heals very poorly. Crusts in the nose, even if they bother you a little, should not be picked under any circumstances - there is very delicate skin underneath them, and until it is completely restored, it is better to keep it covered. If the crust is completely in the way, but does not fall off on its own, you can try soaking it with regular baby cream - this way it will fall off faster, and before that it will not tighten the skin around it too much.
Why do children get sores?
Young children may develop sores in the nose for various reasons that are different from their appearance in adults.
- Small wounds with fluid secretion in the nose appear due to the introduction of Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis to the mucous membrane. The first signs are a rash of small pimples near the nostrils, redness and swelling in the nasopharynx.
- The air in the room is too dry, where a child stays for a long time or frequent use of the air conditioner at maximum mode;
- Children often pick their nose, scratching and irritating the mucous membrane, resulting in small abrasions.
Small children also develop sores and pimples on the nose. How to relieve pain and what to treat depends on the cause of the problem.
People who do not trust folk remedies can find special healing preparations at the pharmacy that will speed up the healing of scratches several times, but they must be used carefully. Any medicine has a strong effect on the body, and especially on the unprotected nasal mucosa, so even a slight overdose can lead to tangible consequences.
When using medications, it is worth remembering: even the most harmless of them can cause a runny nose in an ordinary, completely healthy person. If the patient has contraindications to the use of a particular ointment or gel, a serious allergic reaction may begin, the consequences of which will be much more difficult to deal with than with small wounds in the nose.
The rule for applying any new ointment or gel is extremely simple: the product is applied exclusively to the damaged area of the nasal mucosa, after which the patient begins to monitor his condition. Usually, symptoms of incompatibility appear immediately: the nose begins to burn strongly, sometimes a large amount of mucus is released from the nostril. In any case, you must immediately wipe off the applied product with a dry paper napkin.
What do we have to do?
Whatever the reasons for the appearance of sores in the nose in children, parents must show the child to the doctor and carry out treatment according to his instructions.
Do not use any medications to self-treat sores, even if your child develops them due to a trifle. After all, the effect of any drug on the baby’s body is individual and unpredictable.
- First, you need to contact a pediatric ENT specialist for an examination;
- Use inhalations and rinses only after a doctor’s prescription;
- If the test results confirm the presence of staphylococcus in a child’s nose, then it is necessary to take an antibiotic, and to prevent damage to the microflora of the mucous membrane, you need to drink probiotics;
- Rinse your nose with warm salt and herbal infusions;
- Several times a day, instill vasoconstrictor drops into your nose as prescribed by your doctor.
Do not self-medicate or try to treat children without consulting a doctor. What is suitable for an adult can be harmful for a child.
How to treat sores under the nose: additional medications
If sores appear under the nose, this is most likely a sign of herpes.
A blood test and examination by a doctor will help confirm this. In such cases, the doctor prescribes treatment for the patient. Typically it includes:
- antihistamines: Suprastin, Erius, etc.;
- antiviral drugs of local and systemic action: Acyclovir, Famvir, Valtrex, Giporamin and others;
- immunomodulators: Cycloferon, Viferon, Arbidol, Likopid, Isoprinosine, etc.;
- adaptogens: tinctures of ginseng, eleutherococcus, etc.
As an auxiliary measure, you can use a popular remedy - the inner film of a chicken egg. It is removed from a hard-boiled egg and applied to the eggs several times a day.
Other causes of sores in the nose
Sometimes, due to our negligent attitude towards our health, small wounds appear in the nose, which can become covered with hard crusts. This is a signal that you need to think about the consequences of such actions.
- Frequent and unnecessary use of medications leads to dryness of the nasal mucosa, cracks and wounds form there;
- Infections from dirty hands get into scratches or wounds and inflammation begins. Small wounds develop into sores;
- Eczema is a painful redness that appears near the entrance to the nasal cavity due to a severe runny nose.
Treatment of such diseases, as a rule, depends on their neglect. Sometimes it is enough to lubricate the wounds with ointment or instill drops for several days, but sometimes serious treatment with antibiotics is still required.
Here are some of the possible reasons why long-healing sores may develop in and around the nose.
Let's start with the fact that the first cause of these non-healing wounds on the face and skin is the herpes simplex virus. The blisters associated with it can actually appear anywhere on the body, but most often appear on the fingers, lips, and especially around the nose area.
The reappearance of ulcers is a consequence of the virus remaining in the body, even though the wound may have previously healed.
It is important to note that some people develop these ulcers more often than others, especially those with a weakened immune system.
To manage them periodically since the virus cannot be completely cured, your doctor will prescribe medications to relieve symptoms and speed up healing.
Note that fever and stress tend to increase the frequency of recurring nasal herpes infections.
Pemphigus vulgaris on the nose.
At the same time, the man had formations on other parts of his body. Also, non-healing ulcers inside and outside the nose can be caused by such a rare disease as pemphigus, the symptom of which is the appearance of blisters. Externally on the skin, the cause may be pemphigus vulgaris, which can appear on any part of the body. And inside the nose there is pemphigus foliaceus, which affects the mucous membranes. With any of these types of disease, the wounds or blisters are painful and take a long time to heal.
Unilateral vestibulitis (bacterial infection) of the nose, due to foreign body impact.
Don't forget that trauma to the nose can cause this problem. Common examples are rupture of capillaries during strong nose blowing or frequent wiping of a runny nose with a handkerchief, which can also cause small wounds.
Infections, particularly bacterial
Infection in the vestibule of the nose (vesticulitis)
Infections, especially bacterial ones, can also cause sores in and under the nose that do not heal. It is important to understand that the nasal passages usually act as a shield against dangers such as bacteria and dust in the air we breathe. They become trapped in mucus on the nasal hairs. However, when there is damage to the nasal mucosa, it is very likely that bacteria can cause an infection that will lead to sores.
Staphylococcus bacteria are known to be one of the most common causes in this case. Staph bacteria are usually found on people's skin and can get into the nose when touched. They are usually harmless, but when the nails accidentally damage the tissue, then an infection occurs. When this happens, the infection leads to sores in the nose that may not heal for a long time.
Extreme weather conditions
Nasal ulcers sometimes appear due to high ambient temperatures, especially in winter when the humidity level drops sharply. The main reason associated with this problem is that low humidity leads to a decrease in the hydration of the nasal mucosa.
In this case, a dry crust forms in the nose, and an attempt to rip it off will most likely lead to damage to the mucous membrane, as well as bleeding. Sometimes this can form ulcers in the nose, especially in the nasal septum area.
Do not forget that long healing of wounds in the nose can be the result of such a bad habit as constantly trying to remove everything that is dried there from the nostrils. Sometimes this interferes with the natural healing process.
A weak immune system can lead to nasal ulcers that are difficult to heal. This especially applies to people who have undergone certain medical procedures, such as chemotherapy. They are more vulnerable to infections, including those mentioned above.
Crusts and cracks in the nose: why and how to save yourself
The appearance of dry crusts and painful cracks can be caused by the same reasons mentioned above. But most often the cause is excessive dryness of the nasal cavity.
To alleviate your condition, you need to regularly rinse your nose with solutions and use drops; the crusts and cracks themselves need to be lubricated with special ointments. The following drugs have proven themselves to be effective: Aqua Maris, Humer, Otrivin, Rescuer ointment.
Also during this period, it is recommended to drink plenty of fluids, stop taking other medications, take vitamins orally, especially E, do steam inhalations based on calendula or chamomile, and use a household humidifier to maintain a comfortable state. It is good to lubricate crusts and cracks with tea tree or sea buckthorn oil, as they have antibacterial and restorative properties.
Healing wounds with diabetes at home
To make wounds easier to heal, they should be treated immediately after the injury occurs. Most diabetics do not feel the formation of calluses, cuts or punctures in the skin on the feet, so in order not to miss an important point in the initial treatment of the wound, it is necessary to constantly examine the feet, especially if injuries are possible, for example, after walking barefoot on the ground.
Wound healing in diabetes mellitus will occur faster if, in addition to local treatment of the damaged surface, other measures are taken - normalize blood sugar levels, take vitamins, and use medicinal herbs in therapy. In some cases, home treatment may not be enough.
Physiotherapeutic methods of treatment have a good effect in the treatment of non-healing wounds. In medical settings, the problem can be quickly corrected using a magnetic field, laser, electric current or ultrasound. In severe cases of the disease (gangrene, Charcot's foot), surgery may be required.
To heal wounds in diabetes mellitus, various ointments with antibacterial and wound-healing components are prescribed.
Depending on the etiology and nature of the wound surface, they differ, in particular:
- ointments Delaxin, Vulnostimulin, Trofodermin, Fusicutan, Solcoseri, Algofin are used to treat trophic ulcers;
- open wounds are treated with Levomekol, zinc ointment, Baneocin, Dioxyzol;
- in the treatment of purulent wounds, Vishnevsky, streptocidal, syntomycin, ichthyol ointments, as well as Iruksol, are used.
Vitamin and mineral complexes help heal wounds in diabetes mellitus. They stimulate the immune system and saturate cells with useful biologically active substances.
Along with drug therapy, folk treatment based on the healing power of herbs can be used.
To heal wounds in diabetes mellitus, compresses or baths are made from folk remedies that have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and healing properties, for example, the following:
. Fresh leaves of the plant are applied directly to the wound.
- Fresh cucumbers
. Soak gauze with vegetable juice and make compresses or lotions.
. For the bath, brew two tablespoons of medicinal dried flowers in 200 ml of water.
- Curdled milk
. Compresses are made from the fermented milk product, which perfectly relieve inflammation.
Patients with diabetes should be sure to prevent non-healing wounds, since the risk of encountering such a problem is very high.
What do we have to do:
- wash your feet every day;
- inspect your legs daily, especially your feet for damage;
- moisturize the skin with creams;
- do not walk barefoot;
- monitor the air humidity in the room and drink more clean water, since the skin of diabetics is prone to excessive dryness;
- choose the most comfortable, preferably orthopedic shoes to prevent the formation of calluses;
- You cannot take a bath for a long time or keep your feet in water, as dry skin quickly absorbs moisture and then becomes loose and cracks;
- When treating wounds, avoid using iodine or hydrogen peroxide;
- do not wear socks with tight elastic bands, as they impair blood supply to the lower extremities;
- give up cigarettes and alcohol, which disrupt blood microcirculation.
The most popular remedies for the treatment of sores in the nose
How can you alleviate your condition if you can’t go to the doctor? There are several universal medications that are used to achieve the desired effect. But it is worth remembering that this relief is temporary, since it is necessary first of all to look for and eliminate the root cause of these sores.
- Vishnevsky ointment, oxolinic, ichthyol help soften crusts and promote rapid healing of wounds and abrasions;
- Doctor Mom ointment relieves inflammation, relieves runny nose and other nasal diseases;
- Aqua Maris moisturizes the nasal mucosa and has an antibacterial effect;
- Evamenol acts as an anesthetic and helps restore the nasal mucosa;
- Levomekol has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects;
- Miramistin has a vasoconstrictor and antimicrobial effect;
- Herpevir or Zovirax will help if the cause of the sore is the herpes virus;
- You can also use a folk remedy based on sunflower oil, beeswax and egg yolk;
- If the nasal cavity is very dry and crusts and cracks have formed there, then nasal drops cannot be used. It is better to replace them with saline solution and herbal decoction;
- Inhalations based on fir or tea tree essential oils will help heal wounds faster;
- A clove of garlic, crushed with vegetable oil, also helps.
Under no circumstances should you burn wounds with iodine, brilliant green or alcohol tinctures. After all, you can not only cause a serious burn to the nasal mucosa, but also aggravate the problem.
How to treat damage
Any wounds that appear inside the nose should not be ignored. At first glance, they may seem harmless, but in fact they can lead to serious complications. The method of treating a wound in the nose depends on what caused it. If it appears against the background of herpes, treatment should be carried out in several directions.
First of all, you need to strengthen your immune system, since this is what causes the activation of the herpes virus. Even if the wound heals, but the virus remains in the blood in large quantities, the situation will repeat itself. Usually, to heal wounds caused by this virus, doctors recommend Acyclovir, Zovirax or Valacyclovir ointment. You need to lubricate at least 5 times a day.
The intervals between procedures should be equal, for example, every 2 hours. The active ingredients of the medicinal ointment cause the death of viral cells on the sore, and therefore it heals quickly. It is advisable to start treatment before a crust forms. It is then that the components of the medicine are freely absorbed into the wound and have a healing effect. If the disease is protracted, then Acyclovir tablets are simultaneously prescribed to speed up recovery.
For a disease such as nasal furunculosis, antibacterial ointments will help cure wounds in the nose. The need to use such drugs is due to the fact that the disease is caused by a bacterium - staphylococcus. The doctor will select medications that will eliminate the inflammatory process, eliminate discomfort and promote the release of pus.
Levomekol ointment for the nose
This effect is guaranteed by the use of the following drugs:
- Vishnevsky ointment;
- Tetracycline ointment;
- Ichthyol ointment.
For nasal sycosis, antibacterial drugs, both local and broad spectrum, are also prescribed, in combination with disinfectants. Hydrogen peroxide, furatsilin solution or salicylic acid are used as the latter. Also, with this disease, it is necessary to use softening agents that remove crusts. For these purposes, Burov's liquid, 5% quinosol ointment and decamethoxin ointment at a concentration of 0.1% are suitable.
After a long or chronic runny nose, eczema may form on the surface of the nasal mucosa. The peculiarity of this sore is that it can get wet. Therefore, you need to take measures to ensure that it dries out. For this purpose, Burov's liquid, zinc solution, and resorcinol are used. Medicines are used in the form of applications or lotions.
To regenerate and restore damaged nasal mucosa, for example, after ulcers and erosions, it is recommended to use healing creams. The most popular of them are Bepanten and Solcoseryl. Healing will be facilitated by lubricating the damaged area with olive or sea buckthorn oil and vitamin E.
We prevent the problem from occurring competently and in a timely manner
What to do to prevent this misfortune from ever visiting your nose? There are several smart rules that will not only help protect your nose from sores, but will also have a beneficial effect on your overall well-being.

While watching the video you will learn about the symptoms in the nose.
Whatever the cause of painful wounds and abrasions in the nose, it should always be treated first. Otherwise, everything is in vain, sores will appear again and again. Moreover, it is better to prevent this problem than to look for methods to treat it later. Monitor your health in a timely manner.
How to draw a nose from a 3/4 perspective
Hi all! Today I will show you how to draw a nose for beginners in 3/4 perspective from three positions.
This lesson is a little different from the previous ones. In each step you will be given a choice: each of the three proposed noses from the same angle, but the first is at eye level, the second is below eye level, and the third is above it.
To speed up your learning, I recommend drawing only one nose, and not three at once.
In this tutorial I used the following materials:
— sketchbook (Canson); — pencils НВ/ТМ and 2В/2М (Derwent); - kneaded eraser.
Decide from what angle you want to draw the nose. The level of inclination of the volumetric shape implies the height of the nose (how far away it is from the face), and the width determines the width of the nose.
Draw the outlines with a hard-soft pencil as discreetly as possible. I purposely draw with bright lines so you can see them.
Draw two circles, placing them at the extreme points of the volumetric shape (in the third example, draw another one). The circles should extend halfway out of the lines.
Using a soft (2B) pencil, draw a curve from the top of the 3D shape to show the beginning of the bridge of the nose leading into the eyebrow. To enhance the definition of the eyebrow, lengthen this arch.
Draw the tip of the nose supported by the main circle.
Draw a line around the nasal septum and give the tip a unique shape.
Connect this line to the top arc. No nose is perfect, so add some bumps to make it look more interesting.
Draw curves along the remaining circles to create the wings of the nose.
Don't know what size your nostrils should be? Take the circles we drew earlier as a basis.
In the second example I did not draw the nostrils - they are usually not visible from this angle.
Before you start shading, draw a curve parallel to the bridge of your nose that will reflect its shape from step 4.
Erase all unnecessary lines.
If your shadows are barely visible, or if you're concerned about contour lines showing through your design, use the linear shading method.
After you get good at drawing similar noses, try experimenting by drawing noses with different circle sizes, as in the examples below:

Ointment for colds in the nose
Patients often ask ENT doctors to select a nasal ointment for a cold, being sure that the cause of the sores is the herpes virus.
Indeed, with this infection, itchy, painful rashes appear, but the symptoms are similar to bacterial ones, for example, staphylococcal.
You can make sure that it was herpes in the nose that provoked the painful rash only after taking a microflora test.
What ointment should I use to treat a viral infection? Doctors usually prescribe antiviral and immunomodulatory external agents:
Panavir is a gel with antiviral and local immunity-strengthening properties, has a herbal composition. You need to start applying the remedy for wounds in the nose as early as possible, using it 4-5 times a day for a course of 5 to 10 days in a row;
Tromantadine is an effective remedy against the herpes virus, which helps to avoid rashes on the mucous membrane if applied in time. At the stage of painful erosion after opening the ulcers, using Tromantadine is also effective - it relieves pain and prevents further inflammation;
Acyclovir - helps with sores left not only from herpes infection, but also from chickenpox. You can start using it from the first days so that the symptoms of itching and pain go away faster and continue until the crusts disappear;
Oxolinic is a drug that protects against viral infection when applied nasally. Used for the prevention and treatment of influenza, herpes, the product is safe for both adults and children.
