Nose is a very sensitive area and its a gateway for entrance of different organisms so you need to treat it carefully with oral antibiotics.I would suggest you use amoxycillin with clavulanic acid three times per day for five days and also use combination of topical antibiotics with mild steroids. that will help you.
