Thanks for writing to us.

Pain at the region of nostrils as well as in gum line at the same time may be due to-

Abscess developed either due to decay or due to periodontal infection.

I would suggest you to get a thorough clinical evaluation done.

Abscess if present,has to be drained and curetted.

Get scaling done.

Maintain oral hygiene well.

Take ciplox as well as diclofenac tablets after consulting with your dentist.

If symptoms persists,please do visit an ENT specialist too.

Take care.

Thanks for asking the query,

It can be due to ENT problem , consult an ENT specialist.
Other than this it can be due to infection in the tooth radiating its pain , if you are suffering from toothache visit to Dentist and get the checkup done.
Maintain a good oral hygiene, use antiseptic mouthwash gargles twice daily.

Hope this helps out.

Hi I ve had a hard pea sized lump at back/base of left nostril for over a year now. I had root canal treatment on the tooth just underneath where this lump is and when this lump appeared so did a lump on my gum . I had to have tooth removed and gum lump disappeared but still got lump in nose. It s not particularly painful but I can tell it s there sometimes it feels smaller and if I press it really hard it seems to move abit for a day or so then returns. I am worried what it could be . Thanks Jo

I Just noticed a receded gum line at one of my front teeth, tenderness up to my nostril on that side and pain in the top gum going towards all the way to the back tooth, a slight bleeding when using my electric tooth brush in this area. It is pretty tender, I first noticed the tenderness at nostril yesterday. I had a very bad cold starting the first week in May and am just this week feeling over it. I think I can wait to see my dentist on Monday, but can I do something to help in the meantime, such as a hydrogen peroxide solution to rinse my mouth?
