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!

      Just read how Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez helped raise $340,000 for transgender youth. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-casually-joins-171241889.html It sure would help if we had some celebrity or public person champion our cause. Maybe that should be our focus, to reach out to public persons and try to enlist them.  All it takes is a tweet from the right person.

      Dr. Iwasaki is definitely deserving of funding. I'd love it if we could do a fund raiser for her. I guess at the moment we are already doing the Fred Hutch Center.

      Hi, I’ve had HSV1g for 4 years and only ever had my first and only breakout. I’m super thankful for that. I still hate disclosing as it sets off alarms. Finally met a guy I really really like and disclosed last night to be clear about why I’ve been hesitant to be intimate.  We have for sure kissed and after telling he was in a panick about us having kissed. I’ve never ever had cold sores and have never passed it to anyone. Again in 4 years only my first and only genital HsV1 breakout. I’ve always been told kissing for me was fine....Can anyone help clarify? I’m resllt struggling as I like this guy a lot and hoping he can look past it.
