I've had a little bit of discomfort inside my nostril, kind of like having a cold or some such, and today I finally went to look and it appears there's an exposed bone. I touched it and it's definitely a bone. Um, it feels weird, like having a nosebleed, but there hasn't been any blood.

It's not bone, it's cartilage. We don't have bones in our nose or ears Very Happy

I'd go to the doctor... it could get infected.
