Welcome to HCM

It seems that due to chronic use of cocaine thick crusting has formed in nose. It is a common side effect of cocaine inhalation. Due to chronic inhalation congestion occurs and also tar accumulation occurs in nose which results in crusting and granulomas formation. For relief you can use antihistaminics for some time and visit your doctor for opinion. And please quit cocaine other wise it will lead to more serious complications.
