There are diseases that are not serious, but there are plenty of problems from them! For example, painful formations in the nasal passages. They bring great discomfort and spoil the look. If the sore nose does not pass for a long time, there is no time for laughter - urgent measures should be taken. How can you cure such an abscess or an ulcer and should you consult with a specialist?
To see beyond your nose: why wounds and boils form in your nostrils?
The nose is not only responsible for breathing: it performs the function of the primary protective barrier, that is, it does not allow infection in the body. An “unequal fight” with viruses can lead to all sorts of sores. So, herpes often settles on the nasal mucosa.
Bad habits also contribute to the fact that the nose is constantly formed sores. Some people (and this applies not only to children, but also adults) are constantly picking their nose. As a result, wounds and crusts appear in it.
One of the main reasons causing such problems is a runny nose and dry mucous membrane. If rhinitis occurs, frequent blowing of the nose and strong discharge results in mucous lesions. The use of vasoconstrictor drops only aggravates the problem.
Pain and inflammation in the nose can also cause a boil.
If the sore does not go away, then, quite possibly, it was caused by more dangerous ailments: erysipelas, syphilis, polyps, tumors. Non-healing wounds are one of the symptoms of diabetes. And no matter how much you are then treated with ointments and folk remedies, you will not be able to get rid of them in such ways. There should already be connected to antibiotics and other serious drugs.
Ulcers, ulcers and other troubles: how to cure the mucous?
When a sore nose does not go away by itself, treatment should begin with measures to strengthen the immune system. This will help Echinacea tincture and drugs that stimulate the defense system: Anaferon, Immunoplus, Amiksin, Imudon. We need to reconsider our regime - move more, harden the body. It is useful to moisten the nasal passages with saline solutions.

- If the underlying factor is herpes, then this treatment will help:

Treatment of crusts in the nose without leaving home
Another problem that small and large patients often face is a nose crust. The causes and treatment of such sores are closely interrelated. If they are formed due to dryness of the mucous membrane or atrophic rhinitis, then it is advisable to use such means:
- ointments - Traumel, Fleming, Lifeguard;

- inhalation with calendula and chamomile decoction;

For the healing of blood crusts suitable sea buckthorn or sunflower oil. Cotton swabs are impregnated with these agents and kept for half an hour in the nasal passages. Tea tree has excellent regeneration potential. It perfectly heals microcracks and larger wounds in the nose. It can be used in pure form or mixed with baby cream. Very good effect gives rosehip oil.
If blood crusts are formed due to congenital vascular weakness or high blood pressure, the treatment should include preparations for strengthening the vessels (Ascorutin) and antihypertensive drugs. If the cause of the crusts was chronic tonsillitis or caries, then we must deal with these ailments.
