Mild cold, frequent nose bleeds, portion inside the interior of nostril seems scabbed, oozes on touching. Treatment?

Hello Doctor, I have a mild cold , and due to the combination of blowing my and the cold temperatures outside, I ve been getting nosebleeds every once in a while. It usually isn t an issue, and heals quickly, but there is one portion of the interior my nostril that has scabbed over in a jagged fashion, and has leaked puss when I gently touched it with a tissue . What should I do regarding this? Thank you.

I have gone through your query.
It suggests that you are suffering from the vestibulitis.
I personally advised to go for
1. Antibiotic for removal of the infection.
2. Anti-inflammatory drug to reduce the pain and inflammation.
3. After infection subside then go for the liquid paraffin nasal drop 5 drops 5 times a day
4. Avoid putting finger in the nose.

Wish you good health
