Dentist 's  Response

Thanks for writing to us.

Pain at the region of nostrils as well as in gum line at the same time may be due to-

Abscess developed either due to decay or due to periodontal infection.

I would suggest you to get a thorough clinical evaluation done.

Abscess if present,has to be drained and curetted.

Get scaling done.

Maintain oral hygiene well.

Take ciplox as well as diclofenac tablets after consulting with your dentist.

If symptoms persists,please do visit an ENT specialist too.

Take care.

Thanks for asking the query,

It can be due to ENT problem , consult an ENT specialist.
Other than this it can be due to infection in the tooth radiating its pain , if you are suffering from toothache visit to Dentist and get the checkup done.
Maintain a good oral hygiene, use antiseptic mouthwash gargles twice daily.

Hope this helps out.
