Cold sore in the nose??

Recommended Posts


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!

      Diagnosed a year ago. Tried suppression therapy to no avail. Dr prescribed 500mg Valtrex increased to 1000g no help. Two HIV test negative. The worst experience ever. Tried oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, lysine, Multi vitamin. Just read because I’m peri menopausal it might be hormones. Outbreaks are constant hsv 2.  If anyone can can relate, I’m pleading for insight.

      Hi walkthetalk can you please give us more details about your experience with synergy as for how long you been in it, you mention you didn’t get outbreaks do you still feel the flares etc, are you planing to get retested?

      The medications are mainly based on disrupting replication. I am not aware of medications for herpes with the purpose of reducing antibodies directly. Do you have an example?

      I've been reading up on alot of this and I'm just curious about the meds they offer here. They stop it from replicating and others keep the antibodies down. Just a thought and I'd appreciate any input on this. Wouldn't you much rather have high antibodies for this so the immune system can keep it at bay. Or am I all the way off?
