Symptoms:Symptoms include redness, swelling, and pain. Sometimes the tissue becomes raw and bleeds. Nasal vestibulitis typically develops with extended sneezing and nose blowing such as occurs with colds and allergic rhinitis.
Diagnosis:To diagnose the underlying cause of nasal vestibulitis, your doctor or licensed health care practitioner will ask you several questions related to your symptoms. Providing complete answers to these questions will help your health care provider in diagnosing the cause of your symptoms.Questions for diagnosing the cause of nasal vestibulitis include:
- Do you have pain in your nose and, if so, when did it start?
- Has there been discharge or bleeding from the nose?
- Have you had any change in your ability to smell?
- What medications have you been taking?
- What other symptoms do you have?
Nasal Vestibulitis Treatment: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.
