Ugh! This is embarrassing, but my nose- either just inside the nostrils, or just outside them- itches ALL the time. I don't know what the deal is. Allergies, sensitive skin, or what. But I'm constantly scratching, rubbing, you name it. (I'd like to just cut the darn thing off so I don't have to worry about it!) Problem is that this means I'm constantly touching my nose! And I probably look like a freak, too. :( Am I alone in this? Anybody else have a constantly itchy nose? What do you do about it?

Maybe you are sensitive to a product you're using. try changing to soap free cleansers and sensitive shower gels etc. Even shampoo can cause this, my nose itches with certain shampoos even tho' we don't really get them on our faces much. I know it sounds silly but how old is your moisturiser and foundation or powder, these things have a opened life and should be changed regularly, it's amazing how many bugs can live in your face powder. Do the hairs in your nose need trimming? The problem is that the more you rub at it the sorer it will get, I would smear a little savalon or sudacream ect on the affected ares under my make-up and at bedtime, see it that will help it heal. Maybe you should be sylivebunny if you wriggle your nose so much? Only kidding - trying to chear you up, hope it's better soon! hugs R***

:P Thanks for the humorous post. :D IT is very possible it's the lotion I use. I put lotion on my face right after I take a shower- I have to, or my skin gets really dry and itchy. I keep hairs trimmed, btw. LOL :D

Thank-you so much for giving me best response, I hope you nose feels better soon, if not ask your Dr to run some allergy tests.

I saw your thread, and I'm so sorry about this. I hope that it works out for you, with the removal of the skin, and the grafts. HUGS!

he he he!!!!i have the same problem. I am an allergy sufferer though so come summer time, my nose has a mind of its own. constant itch in the nostril and now matter how much you rub, scratch, rinse - it just does not do the trick. and alas, i still have not found a remedy. think we'll go with cutting it off ...lol
