I have had some problem...
I have had some problem with my right nostril , I previously had some dental work done a tooth canal that irritated my sinuses I had a runny nose for about a week and I kept blowing my nose.. it eventually passed but then I felt like I had a bump inside my nose I’ve tried to look inside but it’s pretty hard to see... I looked up what a nose bump would be and I believe I have a swollen turbinates... I’m not sure if it’s infected or just irritated by allergies! I’m very allergic to cats and dogs I get hives and now itchy eyes and nose as well as runny nose. I’ve been working in an imvorment with cats and dogs two days a week.

Ask Your Own Health Question

Dear friend, the lump corresponds to an inflammation of the mucous membrane of the nose, specifically of the turbinates.
this inflammation looks mild, it would really be convenient to do a good examination of the nose with a nasoscope, but in his case I suggest starting with nasal steroids to reduce your symptoms.
I suggest Nasacort Allergy this medicine is over-the-counter, you will put 2 nasal sprays daily in each nostril for 5 days, also I suggest starting with Loratadine 10mg 1 daily for 10 days. If in 5 days you have not noticed any improvement you should go to a consultation.

Thank you for your response , I was very afraid of a bad infection ... would Benadryl do the same as Loratadine?

Yeah, Benadryl might be helpful in this case.
You shouldn't be alarmed by a serious infection.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
