Customer Question

I had a scratch on the outside of my nose and it healed, but it opened back up and now, it heals and reopens whenever I clean my face. I can't get it to completely heal. What can I do.

Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Usually bacterial super infection can cause this commonly.

You can try over the counter bacitracin ointment twice daily to let it heal completely.

Natural remedy Turmeric and honey paste also can be applied daily to let it heal well.

They both have strong anti inflammatory and anti bacterial properties.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
