The inside of my nose - my nostrils very red and raw, painful to touch, (if you touch the outside of the nose -) is there anything I can get to heal this? I do not know how it was caused, I have it now for at least a month, I have been very careful not to blow my nose to hard hoping it would heal itself, but nothing has happened as yet.
Welcome to JustAnswer.
Is there any swelling or ulcer? Did you have any treatment? Did you have any other symptom or previous illness?
No, I have had no treatment or previous illness, have never had ulcers, it is when I look up my nose, a layer like of skin is gone, that is the best way I can describe it, but it shows no sign of getting any better.
Thank you for the information. This can be due to an inflammation or infection of the nasal passage. The feeling of loss of a layer seems like an ulceration. You need to get it checked by doctor. Treatment can need local ointment &/or oral antibiotics.
I hope this information will be helpful. Please ask if you need any clarification.
