The Cause Of The Appearance Of Bumps On The Nose?
sorry I want to ask so first on my nose there was a big lump at that time I think the acne gradually got smaller but didn’t go away and it didn’t hurt at all I checked with the doctor tht he said allergies and I was told to make allergy medicine and Avamys nasal spray but right the doctor who examined him was in his ideal place even though the lump was outside my nose, now I’m not sure that the lump outside my nose is allergic because what the doctor examined was not outside so what do you do, thank you.
Hello, good morning Aldiamlyna ..
One of the bumps on the nose can occur due to allergies, one of which is known as konka hypertrophy. Konkha hypertrophy is the enlargement of konkha, which is a structure in the nasal cavity that functions as a turbine to help warm and humidify the air that enters through the nasal cavity. Symptoms of Konka hypertrophy include nasal congestion, difficulty breathing, difficulty smelling a smell, etc. Apart from hypertrophy konkha, lumps inside the nose associated with allergies can also be nasal polyps. Nasal polyps are soft, painless, benign growths of tissue that are grape-shaped hanging from their stems. Symptoms are almost the same as hypertrophy konkha, namely complaints of nasal congestion, impaired sense of smell, difficulty breathing, etc. Treatment of both hypertrophy konkha and nasal polyps includes the use of anti-allergic drugs or nasal sprays.
Other causes of bumps on the nose include nasal folliculitis and nasal vestibulitis. Nasal folliculitis is inflammation of the hair follicles in the nose. Usually this condition is caused by a bacterial infection, and is triggered by the habit of plucking nose hairs or scraping the nose. Symptoms of folliculitis are pimple-like bumps that are red, itchy, and sore. Nasal vestibulitis is inflammation of the vestibular area, which is the area at the front of the nostrils that is covered by nasal cartilage. Symptoms include redness and swelling at the front of the nostrils that looks like a pimple and feels painful. The cause of vestribulitis is the same as folliculitis. Both folliculitis and nasal vestibulitis are usually treated with antibiotic ointments or creams, anti-inflammatory drugs, or antibiotic tablets.
When an ENT doctor examines the inside of the nose, surely he is also examining the outside of the nose. So you don't have to worry that the outside of your nose is not being checked, yes .. You may indeed have folliculitis / vestibulitis on the outside of your nose, but the inflammation has healed (it is not as painful as you said and it has shrunk) , and then when examining the inside of the nose, it was found that there was an enlargement of the structure in the nose due to allergies (accidentally), so the doctor gave anti-allergic drugs and sprays to shrink the lump. To be sure, you should consult your ENT doctor who is treating you again, because he is the one who knows more about your condition.
That's all, hopefully it can be understood and hopefully it helps ...
