Our expert says:
Nasal vestibulitis is an infection of the "entrance" of the nose and is usually caused by the organism Staphlococcus aureus. The infection commonly results from nose picking or from an infected hair follicle and can cause a pimple or boil in the nose. Treatment consists of topical antibiotics for a protracted period and should be continued even after the symptoms have subsided. The most important treatment is to stop touching the area, especially with unwashed hands. If the symptoms have not completely cleared on the above, a visit to your ENT is advised to exclude any ulcerative lesion.
