Question: Woke up 1 week ago with swelling in my upper face/eye/nose --- the nasal swelling is pronounced (obvious bump --the size of small pea) about half way down the nose external sidewall--but ALSO internal --with redness and tenderness and some itching . I also have redness on the same nostril area. No fever but nasal drip, usually associated as side effect of BP meds.

Hopefully my photo downloaded. The intention between my eye and nose crease is from my glasses. Thank you.

Brief Answer:

Probably related to an allergy!

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

I have reviewed the imaged attached. This is not too worrisome.

This might be related to an allergy.

For now, regarding treatment I will be conservative.

1. Continue applying warm compresses.
2. Also, get a low dose topical cortisone cream and apply over the nose for a short duration of 5days; this is available over the counter.

Kindly report your progress to me for evaluation and further guidance.

I wish you well.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
