Nasal Vestibulitis

more about Nasal Vestibulitis

  • Symptoms include pain, redness, or a lump at the entrance to the nose.

  • It is usually due to inflammation or minor infection of the hair follicles located at the opening of nose.
  • It is most often a bacterial infection.

  • Examination of the area by a doctor is usually enough to make the diagnosis.

  • Treatment with antibiotics such as Dicloxacillin is needed for 7 to 10 days.
  • A cream, such as Mupirocin, can also be used 2 to 3 times a day to help with the infection.
  • If the problem keeps coming back, an antibiotic called Rifampin is given twice a day for 4 days to help kill the bacteria likely causing the infection.
  • If there is a lump, this may mean that there is a deeper infection.  The doctor may need to make a small cut and drain out the pus/infection.  Do not try to do this at home. It must be done by a doctor.
