Common Questions and Answers about Nose infection causes

infection

Avatar f tn If your son is a small child then the pain in one nostril could be due to foreign body in the nose. This possibility should be eliminated first by careful questioning if the child talks. Consult an ENT immediately. Sinusitis, nasal polyp or a nasal bleed could be the other causes. It can also be a referred dental pain from tooth cavity in upper jaw. A dental checkup may be required. Other than that it can be a hair follicle infection, a boil or an inflamed turbinate of the nose.
Avatar f tn I've been dealing with what I thought was a sinus infection for the past week. Today was the first day I had relief from unrelenting facial pain without the need of painkillers. I was blowing out of lot of bloody mucus throughout the week, and today I blew out something from my nose that had the same feel of latex skin (link to a picture of it is provided below).
Avatar f tn Chronic sinusitis begins with an inflammation of the mucous membranes in your sinuses — the air-filled passages around your nose and throat. The inflammation causes fluid buildup eventually plugging the sinus cavity and preventing normal mucus drainage. Chronic sinusitis can be caused by infections of the upper respiratory tract, allergies and deviated nasal septum .Other suspected causes include mold or fungi in the sinuses.
Avatar m tn I actually just looked for someone to talk to and found a site called Yealthy. I got to speak to a doctor over the phone immediately! And they even sent a prescription to my local pharmacy. Turns out it's a sinus infection, I spoke to a really friendly doctor who talked through all my symptoms and gave me a diagnosis. Great service. I highly recommend!
Avatar f tn The other causes could be due to fungal infection or bacterial infection. You may need to consult your primary care physician who will examine you and initiate appropriate therapy. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Avatar m tn Ive had an ear infection for 4 weeks now. 3 Weeks ago I went to the doctors and she wouldn't give me anything for it. Been really painful this weekend and felt sick and a bit dizzy because of it. What should I do? How long can I expect to have it with not taking anything for it?
Avatar m tn The chronic mycoplasma infection is easier to treat than the clamydia infection. If it is a clamydia infection it will take a while for the antibiotics to work. God bless.
Avatar f tn An inner ear infection can cause vertigo (fainting), which may have started from a sinus infection. Might want to talk to a Ear/ Nose and Throat specialist that your doctor can refer you to.
Avatar f tn It can also cause post nasal drip and lead to an irritation in the throat. Sinus infection causes blockage of flow especially when a person lies down. The blockade is affected by the side to which the person turns also. You will need to consult your primary care physician for proper assessment. In the meantime take OTC naproxen for relief from pain, practice good breathing exercises, humidify your room and do steam inhalations. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn These are substances like pollen, dust, animal dander, certain foods, insect venoms and certain medications. Exposure to allergens causes a runny nose with a resultant post nasal drip where secretions from the nose go backward into the throat and irritate causing cough. Cough is a protective mechanism by the body as it helps to prevent infections. You will need to consult your primary care physician for proper clinical assessment.
Avatar f tn Usually at the same time, I seem to get pimples inside my ears that are very painful. What causes my nose to hurt so bad? I have not been hit in the nose.

Exposure to allergens causes a runny nose with a resultant post nasal drip where secretions from the nose go backward into the throat and irritate causing inflammation. Discuss these options with your doctor when you happen to meet him next time. In the meantime for relief from your symptoms you could do warm salt gargles and take OTC antihistamines.
Avatar n tn Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that causes flaky, dry, white to yellowish scales to form on oily areas esp under the nose or anywhere on face. It is usually caused by overgrowth of Malassezia furfur. This skin disease commonly affects adolescents and young adults, especially in warm and humid climates and is aggravated by sweating and humidity.
Avatar n tn Hi, runny nose and itching may be due to infection or allergy. Non-infectious causes of itching are Chemical or other irritant, Allergic, hypersensitivity, and dermatitis. If runny nose stops after coming home then it may be due to allergen. Also it may be due to acute sinusitis. There may be draining sinus which has been source of infection and causing persistent runny nose and headache. The nasal secretion (or endoscopic guided) for culture and sensitivity should be done.
Avatar f tn In a small kid the chances of a foreign body are very high. Often nose rings are a common source of infection and bad breath. It can also be due to diabetes (less likely but if other causes are ruled out, this should be looked into). Please consult an ENT for proper diagnosis and treatment. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar n tn Hi, There could be several causes of the sores you are having - the most common is picking the nose or trimming nasal hairs - which leads to a staphylococcus infection. Other causes include cold sores due to herpes, impetigo, nasal polyps, lupus , etc. Nothing can be said with surety without having a look at the lesions and without a proper clinical examination. It would be best to consult an ENT specialist and rule out the possible causes and find out the confirmed diagnosis in your case.
Avatar n tn As suggested, your symptoms of bad foul smell in the nose could be due to sinus infections. They are due to stasis and infection of the sinus cavities, and the resultant drainage into the nose causes the bad smell. Facial pain, fever and nasal discharge are the other symptoms of sinusitis. You will need to consult your primary care physician for proper assessment. In the meantime practice good breathing exercises, humidify your room and do steam inhalations.

Avatar f tn My doctor gave me anti hestamine and nose spray but my nose become dry after taking the anti histamine, and this few weeks i started to have a foul odor in my nose and still my nose bleed coming back from time to time. My nose dripp with bad smell also. Can you advice me how to cure my nose bleed and the foul smell.
Avatar m tn I checked my sinuses yesterday and the seem really inflammed and red and my nose doesnt feel stuffy and isnt causing much mucus. The mucus that does eventually come out is always clear and very very sticky. Whats wrong with me? And are sinuses causing my dry mouth?
Avatar f tn e avoid using finger tips to remove the crusts, as they harbor infection causing bacteria. The nose ulcers described could also be due to blowing too much or if the air is too dry. Try using an OTC saline spray. Avoid blowing your nose too hard till the sores heal and use a soft Kleenex. If you don’t already have one get a humidifier for your bedroom. Hope these help Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn I need some help. I have swollen tonsils but I do not have a cold or flu. I have had them for months now. I went to two doctors and they gave me some drugs, but they told me that sometimes when people get sick the tonsils stay swollen. What can be done about this? It is uncomfortable. I also notice that I constantly have a stuffy, runny nose. What causes this? I'm pretty certain i'm not allergic to anything.
