Swelling of the nose, either internal or external, can be frustrating and sometimes painful. Swelling inside of the nose can be caused from irritation from an obtrusive object, inflammation from allergies, or nasal polyps. Outside nose swelling can also be caused from allergic reactions or trauma from an injury.
If you have a bump or pimple in or on your nose, you may find it irritating or painful. The most common causes of a bump on the nose are acne, bacterial, or fungal infection. A painful bump in the nose could also be caused by trauma from picking your nose or a nose piercing.
If you notice a blister on the nose, or inside the nose, this may be caused by skin conditions like a pimple, non-specific nose rash, or a skin abscess. Other causes of nose blistering include allergies or relapsing polychondritis. Read below for more information on causes and treatment options.
