Ask a Dermatology Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. It looks like a small area of dermatitis but this can be caused by things like infection or bacteria too. Have your GP take a nose swab to see if anything grows in the lab. I would also ask them for a prescription of Naseptin cream to use in both nostrils for at least a week to see if that helps clear it. I hope that helps, all the very best.
Hi sorry for the delay we had some technical issues. I think it's extremely unlikely to be cancer, this doesn't have the same appearance at all. If you've tried multiple treatments I'd ask your GP for a referral to see a dermatologist in person as they need to examine it in person up close with a scope to get a better look and also potentially take a small scraping to see what's going on but in almost all such cases it's quite innocent and will go with time or some mild treatment which they can recommend after their assessment. All the best.
Yes it could be, either that, a mild infection or an allergic type reaction like a dermatitis. I would follow my last piece of advice and you'll know for sure. All the best again.
