For several weeks there's been a bump inside my nose close to the tip of my nose. It kind of moves around.
When I says it's on the inside I don't mean the skin on the inside of my nose, but I mean inside the flesh. It hurts when I touch it (when blowing my nose, for example, which i've been doing a lot lately.)
i would like to know if this is something I should be worried about.
Thanks. :x :x :x
Ok, really...It's still there. It's not a pimple. Some may think it's a pimple. Some may think i'm rudolph the red nosed reindeer.
Should I see a doctor?
Could it be cancer, a cyst, some kind of staph thing? I really know nothing about this kind of thing. Help!
About 6 months ago the outside tip of my nose became red, swollen and EXTREMELY painful to the touch. A cotton tshirt rubbing the nose was enough to make my eyes water. 3 trips to the doctor and 4 different antibiotics later, they spot comes and goes, seemed to get worse each time it re appeared, always in the same spot. The doctor finally tells me it''s MRSA - a bad staph infection. More antibiotics.
This week, the sore developed a white head that got more painful by the hour. I decided to take medicine into my owns hands. I sterilized a needle and some tweezers in a gas flame and went to work excising this thing. After squeezing out the goop (Thick yellow pus/fluid), I saw a dark black spot in the center of the wound. I grabbed it with the tweerers and pulled. It was a 2 inch long nose hair that looks to have grown from the inside of my nose out. As soon as I got the hair out and squeezed the rest of the goop, the pain subsided. I coated the wound with antibiotic ointment and it has not hurt since. The swelling is gone, I have a small scab where the wound was and I have no faith in doctors.
Turns out while I was infected, it was a hair follicle and it was not MRSA.
For months this has plagued and worried me. Soemthing to consider. I always had the "feeling" that something was in there that needed to come out.
