Dear Doctor, I had encounter this nose problem this few months, It always happen during my sleep. You will feel like worm crawling out around one of the nostril . I tried to blow out , but it seem gone. But when you go to sleep again. It will run to another nostril. Especially this few weeks. My two nostril will get a bit each day at the inner layer. It just like a pimple . It was very painful. Somtimes I try to catch it when it get itchy. But Only get to see from the tissue paper is a little pool of blood. But when you go into the nostril again. There is no blood on the tissue? Why its funny?? pls advise? thanks.

ENT Specialist 's  Response
Hi and thanks for the query,
Maggots can infest the nose.
Maggots generally infest the nose only when there is an underlying disease.
Please see an ENT specialist to confirm the presence of maggots.
If present they should be removed quickly because they will destroy tissues.
You cannot remove them by yourself at home because they crawl out only when it is dark and as soon as they are exposed to light they hide .
