I'm sorry I'm not trying to be gross.

For a few days now I've had a sore like scab in my nose on the leftside. It hurts and itches. My nose always feels like I have boggers (not sure what's the proper word) in them. In the morning i blow my nose and there's always blood. It's really bothersome especially when i'm at work. What can this be? Has anyone experienced something like this?

I've been having similar issues. My right nostril feels really dry and I get what looks like dried up blood out of it sometimes, and there is also bleeding when I blow my nose. I've been wondering what it is and I tried using a neti pot which helped a little but after not using it for a week the symptoms returned. My nostril always feels like there is some kind of hard mass in it and it's really annoying.

i have the same symptom but its in my left nostril neosporin seems to help moisten up the scab and makes it easier to blow my nose but after a day of not using it it goes right back to the same thing. but i found that using face wash (just rub it on the outside of your nose at the opening)helps with the dryness and the itching some.

solution
if you buy a humidifier (i can't spell) it should help, the reason you get scabs in your nose is because the air is to dry when you sleep, this should help

if you find yellowish or golden scabs in your nose, maybe it's impetigo. sometimes, especially when you're around and handling babies or pets a lot, you might scratch or even pick your nose w/o thinking about it, and spread something into your nose. otherwise, it's something else.

If it becomes bothersome, you may ask if he can prescribe you Bactroban for the inside of your nostrils or perhaps Neosporin.

Scabs in nose
i have had the same thing for about 3 weeks.
it started on the right side then to the left.
it just started to smell on the third week.

thankfully nobody else can smell it!!

i blow my nose and they come out.
also in the mornings there is blood in my phlegm when i spit.
maybe the drain edge
my mother said it could be staph infection.
or just the climate change.
but thats the only thing thats wrong.
my nose feels very dry and itchy at times.
i use a cue-tip
in the mornings with diluted peroxide
it helps with the dryness.
also to suck up water in my nostrils.
(sounds sick but it helps)
the saline doesn't help it breaks open the scab and causes it to bleed.
what tooo dooo???

Sorry to hear about your problem. Scabs in nose can be very irritable and painful. Often antibiotics also do not work that well as they could be ulcers in the nose and heal in their own time. Its advisable to visit doctors at Chicago ENT as they believe in full diagnosis on then patient. They also follow a comprehensive study with the best possible treatment for quick and prolonged cure.
