Hi, I am new to this forum and website, I found it because I was searching for info on nose sores. I am relieved to know I am not alone. I thought I was the only one dealing with this kind of thing. I feel like a freak!! I always get itching really bad in the spot and then a few hours later I notice these little blister type things, then it hurts really bad. My nose gets all red and one side of my nose looks a lot bigger than the other side. I look like a freak, I dont even like going in public with these stupid things in my nose, I feel like everyone is looking at me like Im some kind of monster. I think there may be a link to lupus with all of this, 2 years ago I had a postive ANA test done, along with extreme fatigue and muscle and joint soreness, I also get a skin rash if I am in the sun too long, I have to wear sunscreen. I have a cousin with full blown Lupus and she is taking medication for her symptoms because they are more complex than mine. I do not have health insurance so I havent been to a Rheumatologist as my doctor referred me too. Another thing does anyone's lymph nodes get swollen and very tender under their neck? Mine always does and sometimes my face on the same side as the sores gets tingly and swollen also. I went t the doctor about
my sores in the nose several times and they said it is a form of Herpes, Like a cold sore. They put me on Valtrex for 7 days, but that stuff only works if you take it when the tingling starts, before the actual sore is there , so it didnt really help. Im sorry to go on and on , I just needed to let you guys and gals know what I experienced with these nasty sores. I get them like 4-5 times year, I also get cold sores on my lips and outer edges of my lips several times a year. So I thought maybe the sores in my nose were also cold sores, but in your nose? If anyone has any info or related experiences please share them it would help me a lot, as I have not been able to find out much info about
these stupid sores. Thanks alot!!
