We understand the inconvenience of your complaint
Pain and tenderness around the nostrils and upper lip can be caused by a variety of possibilities.
Based on the information you have provided, your complaint can be caused by a bacterial infection called impetigo crustose. However, other skin disorders that can also cause similar complaints include follicuitis (hair follicle infection), seborrheic dermatitis, allergies to insect bites.
To ascertain your condition, ideally you need to do a direct examination to assess the characteristics of abnormalities that occur in the skin around your nose and upper lip (areas with mustaches).
What you can do is maintain the cleanliness of the affected area by giving betadine or sterile liquid so that the infection does not get worse, do not scratch or rip the crust / crust with your hands or other objects that are not clean / sterile.
Infection and inflammation on the surface of the skin can be relieved by giving ointments that contain antibiotics or low potency steroids. Regarding this therapy, we recommend that you carry out an examination to the nearest doctor or dermatologist for proper evaluation and treatment that suits your condition.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
