Suggest medication for boils or swelling inside the nostril

Monday, the inside of my nose felt like I was developing a pimple. On Tuesday, it felt the same until the evening, the left side of my nose swelled up on the inside and outside as well as turning bright red on the left side of my nose. It didn't cross the midline. I saw nurse practitioner, gave me RX for augmentin. Also, the bridge of my nose swelled and on the left side of face there was swelling. I have been using warm compression packs on nose. No fistula inside or outside. Although the redness is crossing the midline of my nose to the right side. When I bend forward, my nose throbs. With the swelling of the nose, my cheek and upper lip on left side feels numbness. The NP said no cut scrape of injury to the inside of my nostril. Any suggestions?

Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have boils or swelling inside the nostril. Well the symptoms you mention in query can occur due to certain reasons like nasal polyps , folliculitis , sinusitis or nose picking . I would suggest you to continue augmenin and warm compresses . Beside that do warm saline nasal rinses and do not pick your nose or squeeze bumps . If condition doesn't get well then consult ENT specialist for proper examination . Doctor may order CT scan or nasal endoscopy . Doctor may prescribe stronger antibiotics along with anti inflammatory . Doctor may also recommend surgical removal of nasal polyp.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
