Painful sores in nose

3 days ago my nose was so incredibly sore in the right nostril. I thought it might be a pimple, but couldn' t see anything - it was even too painful to touch. 2 days ago it looked like little blisters or punctures (toothpick pricks), now today they have formed scabs, about 5 of them inside the nostril.

What could this be? Do you have any idea as it is very strange and like nothing i' ve ever had before!

Thanks

Hallo Sydney
It could be a herpes simplex or staph aureus infection - try Bactroban nasal ointment
