I have some scars in my nose that are irritating, a lot of bleeding every day?
Hi! I am (…) from Norway. For the past 8 years i have had some scars in my nose that has been really irritating. Because every morning and evening i have to blow my nose because of dry blood from the infected area. Also there is a lot of bleeding every day because of this.. its very frustrating. I have spoke with some doctors here where i live (small place) and they gave me a cream called “altargo 10mg/g” but in the manual it says with capital letters, “do not use in nose, mouth, eyes or other slimy places. Only for external use, skin on arm or leg etc. So i would really like some help to find out what i can do to make these wounds heal. Btw i did take a test, and it came positive with some bacteria present in the infected area (way up in the nose). I am tired of needing to blow my nose 2 times a day to be able to breath, thanks. best regards,
Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
For your nose scars to heal ..your nostrils must be humid..non dry…
To make this you have to stay hydrated well then using a nasal sinus wash is helpful to remove the bacteria..find the black sea water product in pharmacies..it is an ampoules product called physiomer ..follow the instructions of nasal lavage and avoid dry cold air..
Try using Mupirocin or
However u can use altargo if your doctor suggested that you use it even if it says do not
Most antibiotics have the same precautions followed by unless instructed by your doctor
the scars and scabs in the nose usually occur due to dryness of mucosal lining inside the nostrils.
keeping them moist by steam inhalation and nasal lubricant saline drops will solve the issue.
apply antibiotic creams if the scars are infected.
THIS CAN HAPPEN DUE TO INCREASED BODY HEAT AND SEVER VITAMIN DEFICIENCY. LOW HUMIDITY IN THE SURROUNDING WEATHER CAN ALSO CAUSE MUCOSAL DRYNESS.
DRINK PLENTY OF WATER AND FRUIT JUICES. HONEY IRRIGATION OF NOSTRILS WILL BE HELPFUL
keep the nasal mucosa moist. maintain good hydration. check for bleeding disorders . get bleeding time and clotting time done.
get a scopy done to examine for any other underlying pathologies
