The nostrils may be common areas for an infection such as a boil. This may improve if this is the case to use a Q-tip and apply an antibiotic ointment 3 times a day within the affected nostril. Neosporin 3 times a day may help. An Rx antibiotic is sometimes needed . if not improving within a few days then have your doctor take a look...dpimprovment day by Thursday of this week....
