What causes infection of the nose?

So my friend told me about something wrong with his nose and he asked his mom and she doesn’t know but his nose hurts when he touches it and when he takes pictures he can see like an hardened booger substance and blood in his nose but it doesn’t come out and the boogers grow often. Can you help? And the other nostril. He doesn’t pick at his nose before to cause the infection or whatever it is. He only tries to get out the boogery hardness when it’s practically comeing out of his nose and then it doesn’t hurt

General & Family Physician 's  Response

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

The symptoms seem to be related to a forum clear which is an infection of the hair follicle of the nose.

I suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Ibuprofen to relieve the pain.

I also suggest using an antibiotic such as Augmenting twice a day for a week to treat the infection.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
