Lice in my nose, Not yet. I sleep with a cpap machine so

Customer Question

Lice in my nose
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Are you having any breathing problems?
Customer: Not yet. I sleep with a cpap machine so they are probably getting shot deep into my nostrils and mouth
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I tried RID 2 days in a row but didn't seem to help much. I didn't realize they could get in your mouth and nose. I am a cross country truck driver and had a pretty stinky student with me for 5 weeks. I think that's where they came from. Now I got them all over
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

What are your symptoms?

How many have you seen in nose?

Do you have hairy nose?

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 4 months ago.

Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.
I would suggest to get an examination by ENT specialist.
He can examine inside nose with scope & come to a diagnosis.
Ivermectin can be prescribed by doctor, if he feels necessary.
Hairs can be trimmed.
Magnifying glass & nose hair trimmer can be used.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.

Tried Rid....didn't help much
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Well if I have to see a doctor anyway I guess this didn't help much. Thanks for your time

ENT doctor can examine the inside of the nose with scope.

Meanwhile you can try to trim hair in the nose
