Hi, recently I started getting nose sores, and they suck! Someone on here said that using Ambesol would help with the pain. The problem I'm coming across with this is it numbs my nose to the point that I can't feel if its running. I have allergies and have to blow several times a day. So, I've been keeping this little mirror near me at work to do "nose checks" with. My co-workers are probably thinking I'm nuts, but I don't feel the need to gross them out with my nose sores story. What exactly are these caused from? Flares? Plain lupus? I've been told not to use petroleum jelly as the body can't break this down, but I don't think it's a "dry" thing either. If anyone knows of anything that can be put on these to make them go away or make them feel better I would love to hear about
it. My nose feels crusty all the time and its actually a might bit swollen and red on the outside. The liquid that comes out of the sores is sticky-maybe like puss. Really nasty, but I hope you understand what I'm talking about
. Anyways, I will use the Ambesol in private until there is a better solution. Thank you!
