Bleeding from pore on the nose, used hydrogen peroxide, redness reduced, pore wide open. Suggestions?
Hi, I have a question. About two months ago I noticed a pore on my nose was bleeding . It healed over but the skin around it stayed red, looking like it was infected, and one day it started bleeding again. I have since tried to clean it out with hydrogen peroxide and that has reduced the redness but the pore is now wide open and it doesn t ever seem to heal. Is there anything I can do or do I need to see a skin doctor?
Hi, It seems You might be having ingrown hair follicle infection. You need one course of antibiotic for healing. With local dressing it is not going to heal. Consult your doctor and get examined. Ok and take care.
