Ear, Nose, and Throat Disorders
Red inside nose
Hi, I recently noticed my right nose is red inside.and it is very dry.except redness i don`t have any problems. i`m getting pain since 1 year but i never noticed my nose.the pain is like dry nose.I want to know the reasons for this situation. what medicine can i use for this.
The most common cause of a red, irritated area inside the nostril is dryness or a local infection. Saline nasal gels and sprays can help alleviate the problem if it is dry. If it is a local infection, topical prescription antibiotics may be helpful.
