Hello... I understand your concern.

I need some more information please.

1. May I know you age please?

2. Is the sore on the central septum of the nose or on the lateral wall/ Is it peripheral and visible or deep and only felt?

3. Since how long have you been a diabetic?

4. Did this start after any injury or nose piercing?

5. Do you wear a nose stub or ring and if so which material?

6. Do you have the habit of nose picking (I am sorry to ask but as a professional I need to ask you some history)?

7. Do you meddle with this sore often and what medications have you used till now?

8. Did you get herpes any time in that region?

9. I am sorry to ask - but is there any reason for you to get a STD screening done?

Please get back to me with the above information so that I can guide you better.

Kind regards ***** ***** Sumanth Amperayani

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
