I currently have a nasty rash down the right side of my nose.

Customer Question

I currently have a nasty rash down the right side of my nose. It seems to be made up of many tiny yellow headed spots with raised inflamed skin around same. If the spots are squeezed or abraided the fluid that comes out appears to be clear? I also have septic ulcers which keep moving along my gum line on the right side of my mouth. I have tried various creams but nothing seems to get rid of it to any great extent. What could this be and how can I get rid of it?
