Donot pick on scar tissue.. Apply red sandal paste after the lesion heals off.. Mederma will also help

Hi ! In your age group, it could be due to repeated masturbation, which might have caused abrasions, and scabbing. So you should avoid till it heals up completely. In case it pesists, then I would suggest you to consult a dermatologist of your area for a clinical examination to exclude any other kind of infection ( ? fungal). Wishing you an early recovery. Good luck.

Hi and thanks for this query. Any further manipulation of the nose would aggravate the existing dmamge. i will suggest that you stop every manipulation and allow the healing to begin. It would be spontaneous and gradual. I know the urge is always there, but remember it is not the way to healing and you should make conscious efforts too top this. I hope this helps. I wish you well.
