Can anyone offer a suggestion ple4ase - I have been to PCP, ENT, allergist and still need help. I have used Bactroban which really burned the spot that hurts in my right nostril, Bacitracin which the ENT looked with scope and said it was healed but now irritation down further. Went back on saline spray and now bad pain back in upper nostril again. Allergies to grass, all molds, early trees only since last year and had my first really bad winter. Pain started early last month....Before that had constant bloody, yellow scabs in both nostrils so I really could not breathe at all and constant post nasal drip. Now even using Clorox clean up bothers my nose. It is only going to get worse if I do not dust, vacuum, disinfect sink, tub, toilet, etc.

Now I can't even vacuum without getting worse as my N95 mask from CVS doesn't really help and I need to clean. All it does is fog up my glasses which I need to see. Docs seem to have given up on me I have so many allergies -- mostly to drugs. No antibiotics left except Keflex and Levaquin.

Can you put CVS mycrobial silver wound care in your nostril? It says not to swallow but then so does Bacitracin and Bactroban that were recommended by the docs.

I need help fast as the grass is growing already and need to take away old moldy mulch around the house and put down new. I have a guy do that but I have to cover my kitchen, bathroom and dryer vents first so nothing comes in the house to make me worse. Then I have to go out there and take the plastic (or tape covering the opening) off for the spring cleanup and each week for the mowing. Scared to go out.

Any input would be appreciated and yes, I am afraid there are mold spores in the house -- had extensive mold remediation a few years ago and my house runs humid. I have 3 dehumidifiers that will be running very soon and afraid now to breath while emptying them outside. Can't wait to clean the buckets out with my open wound in my nose.

Thanks for your help -- sorry it is so long.

I really have no clue what could be wrong other than to suspect that it's the mold that is causing this. Hopefully someone will come along and relate to what you're going thru; perhaps share their story. Hang in there!

I had those ugly sores for three weeks after we did some construction in the house.
Try saline washes (hypotonic solutions) and rub Saline gel inside your nose as far as you can reach. I like to use Ayr products for this.
Don't use bleach, it's corrosive and cause more sores.

I'd go ahead and run the dehumidifiers and put some DampRid around the house.

Thanks Joy...you have some good ideas. I'll look into the gel. Not sure if Simply Saline spray is hypotonic or not. I can't use a netti pot because of my deviated septum according to the ENT. Any suggestions what I should use on the sink, tub, toilet, kitchen, etc. besides the Clorox Clean Up? Even Scrubbing Bubbles foam bothers my nose now.

Thanks again.

Simply saline sells a hypotonic spray.
Try vinegar and hot water to clean.
