The Cause Of The Nostrils Is Blistered, The Wound Looks Like It Is Scratched, Sometimes Bleeding?
Hello doctor r nI want to ask why my nostrils feel dry, stiff, abrasions like scratches and sometimes bleeding on the walls of the nose, not a nosebleed, doctor? R nDo I need to see a doctor?
Wounds on the nasal wall can be caused by many things, including:
Trauma. It can be caused from the slightest trauma such as picking the nose or from being hit. This may be followed by a nosebleed, which is the discharge of blood flowing from the nostrils, which usually stops spontaneously.
Dry air. Especially in areas with cold temperatures, the dry air inhaled through the nose will irritate the nasal wall and make it prone to injury.
Recurrent inflammation. In some people, allergic rhinitis will make the nasal walls more vulnerable. Other complaints that accompany it are usually itching in the nose, eyes, frequent runny nose, clogged nose in the morning, often sneezing when exposed to allergens.
Long-term use of nasal sprays
Nasal blood vessel disorders
To determine the exact cause of the abnormality in your nose, a direct examination by a doctor is required. You can check with an ENT doctor. Be alert if nose sores occur continuously, accompanied by frequent nosebleeds, occurring only on one side of the nostrils, coupled with complaints of difficulty smelling odors.
Some things you can do to reduce sores on your nose are:
Avoid picking your nose
Use an air humidifier if necessary
Use a mask when driving or in an environment where there is a lot of smoke and dust
That's the explanation from me, hopefully it's useful.
