Cold sore in the nose??

Recommended Posts

kc117

So I have NEVER had a cold sore inside of my nose, only on my lip.. so I am hoping that I can get a little feedback on if this is one or not.. I am slightly paranoid because I have a 3 month old at home and haven't really thought about being super careful because like I said i've never had one there. So I have had a cold where I blow my nose a lot and I could feel it irritating my nose but I don't think I saw any blisters. Then I saw a little scab, so there are 3 tiny scabs inside my nose. They dont hurt when I touch them but hurt a little when I blow my nose and rub to get the stuff out. I'm now freaking out because I chose to Google and now I'm worried I had one and didn't notice?? Shouldn't the scabs hurt to touch if it was a cold sore?? I don't know but any help or insight on this would be wonderful..thank you!!

When you have a cold and have to blow your nose a lot, it's not uncommon for the inside of your nose to get raw, even to the point where scabs form. Since you say you've had a cold, that would be my first assumption.

My close friend gets cold sores on/in his nose, and there's no mistaking what it is. His nose gets red and swollen, it blisters and oozes, and acts just like a regular cold sore. Your description doesn't sound like that. It does sound like my nose feels when I have a cold and it gets raw inside from blowing. Aside from that, I don't know what to tell you.

Thank you!

Thank you for your input, I know it was silly and that I worry too much. I guess I'm just overly paranoid right now with my little newborn. Your answer makes sense and has made me feel much better, thank you!

      Hello, thank you for your generous donation. I donated on Monday after finding the amazing work that has been done. I got a lot of answers from this forum and I hope more people get involved.  Donation send a great message of the interest that we have for a cure. Thank you and I really believe the cure is in the next couple of years.

      I’m bringing us to 20k; I really believe in the research the Jerome lab is doing and want it to cure everyone.

      I think people are discouraged by past failures but remember in failure, new things are learned and the progress on understanding hsv is increasing. Up until Jerome’s lab devised a way to attack the latent virus in 2012 there was never a way to potentially cure it; now there is. Couple in the advancements in technology and I think there’s more hope now than ever that it can be cured in the near future.

      That's actually a comforting statistic

      Because it is still a non curable threat in community. Whether it's a small group of people who experience the most severe symptoms, they're still people, just like you. Hsv prevalence will only grow due to lack of effectiveness of treatment and eventual resistance of virus. The virus will infect more and more people and this virus will and may affect your quality of life and in some rare cases it may lead to severe complications and blindness, meningitis etc. Last time I checked by 2025, US will have half of its population infected genital herpes. Do you think WOH and health community will like that?
