Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

I wouldn't think so, fungal infections in the nose are very rare. Flotiran is a combination of antifungal ointment and a steroid and is mostly used for jock itch and the likes.

If you have a sore in the nose, it is most likely bacterial and you will benefit from a antibacterial ointment.

Hope this helps.

Glad I asked I was not sure. I cannot find what I was prescribed. Can I use neosporin?

Yes, Neosporin is an antibacterial so if the sore is bacterial, then it should help.

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.
