Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for your query.

Its possible that you have carbuncle or furuncle on the nasal septum.You will need antibiotics for a start.Whether it will need removal or not will depend on the size.Please dont mess with it or try to burst it yourself.It will bleed a lot.


Please see a ENT specialist,and then decide whether removal is necessary.
