sensitive tip of nose, slighly red, inside of tip of nose has pus/liquid come out that dries to form a scab-like cover until it is cleaned off---- cycle is repeated. I do not take any meds nor have any med condiiton.... this condition just appeared months ago..... any ideas on what it could be?
I have/had something similar to what you are describing, End of my nose got red and was sore. Eventually, a small area formed a head and was draining liquid/pus and some blood on expression. I mentioned it to an ENT doc at an appt and he said it was probably an infected hair inside my nose and told me to put Neosporin on it and inside the tip. I did this and it seemed to take care of it. I mentioned this to another ENT doc and he prescribed Bactraban (?) and told me to put it on the outside and inside my nose. I haven't used that yet. Recently, it was getting red and a bit sore again, just the end. I started using the Neosporin like before and it settled down. You might try this but if it continues, I would have it checked and good luck finding a good doctor anymore.
