Ways To Treat A Painful Pimple Inside Your Nose

If your skin is already prone to acne breakouts, at some time or another, you are going to get a pimple inside your nose. By this, I mean a pimple actually on the membrane of the inside of a nostril which is both uncomfortable and tricky to deal with.

This type of pimple or sore in nose can be caused by picking the nose and this type is most common in children who transfer dirt containing bacteria from beneath their fingernails to the delicate membranes inside the nose.

For men, an infection can be started when the delicate membrane which lines the nostril is damaged during either plucking out hairs in the nose or by nicking the skin whilst using nose hair trimmers. Bacteria can easily get into the nose lining under these circumstances and a pimple or sore place will be the result.

The inside of the nose is one of the most sensitive areas on our bodies and is full of very small blood vessels. Any infection which results in a swelling such as a pimple can quite literally make your eyes water! The swelling can cause the nostril to become blocked and may become so big that it is noticeable on the outside of the nose.

The best way to deal with a pimple in your nose:- Add a teaspoon of salt to a small container and pour in a small quantity of boiling water to dissolve it. When this has cooled, dip in a Q Tip (cotton bud) and squeeze out any surplus salt solution by pressing the bud against the inside rim of the container. Use the bud to gently clean the sore pimple and the surrounding area. If needed, repeat this operation with a clean cotton bud – you must not reuse the same one.

Using a clean and dry Q Tip, gently wipe the sore area to remove as much moisture as possible before using another clean cotton bud to apply a tiny spot of antibiotic cream or a dab of tea tree oil to the spot. If using antibiotic cream, use as directed and be sure you are not allergic before applying. If using tea tree oil, only use a spot as it may sting and repeat the treatment twice a day for a couple of days.

The instructions given above should help you remedy a pimple in the nose quite quickly and if no improvement is seen you should get medical advice. Avoid future pimples by being very careful not to do anything that would irritate or scratch the delicate membrane inside the nose. If removing nose hair is part of your personal grooming routine, take extra care to avoid a recurrence of a nose pimple.
