Brief Answer:
A photo of your face and following info are needed....

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have gone through your medical history carefully and understood your concerns.

You are saying to have your:
- face
- eye
- nose

swollen; and scabs inside your nose.

There are 2 points to note, possible
1. nasal
2. skin

infection. To give the most right diagnosis, I need to have a look at your face; can you please provide a photo?

Have you run any X-ray of your sinuses?
What have you used so far?


From what you are saying, the pimple you feel under the skin is a possible skin infection/abscess. However, a good physical examination is needed.

Looking forward to have the photo and the info in.
