I have had a pimple in my nose and it was not pleasant at all. It was really painful. It was worse than having a regular pimple on your face. The inside of your nose is very sensitive and when you get a pimple there it is not fun. Any little bump on your nose brings tears to your eyes. It's like a really sharp pain in your nose. It worse than a shot in your armif you ask me. I always hope I don't get a pimple in my nose but time to time I do get them. I try to clean my face on a regularly to prevent such outbreaks.

I experience having big pimples in my nose during my high school days as i a fond of squeezing my pimples thus it becomes infected, grown even bigger then have pus. What I do is to squeeze it until all the liquid oozes to comes out then put a medicine and penicillin powder it cures after a day or two days. Thus, from now I avoid squeezing my nose with a small pimples as it may becomes bigger if I hold it with my hands.

Hope you get alright soon.Once my son had a pimple on his upper lip and he pinched it and it got badly infected.It became very serious and by God's grace the doctor gave a very strong dose of antibiotics and only then it got settled.It got infected so badly thta he got high fever and his cheek became swollen and even tear ducts started getting affected.THen the doctor advised that the area surrounding the nose and lips [ he drew a picture] is supposed to be a "danger zone' because all nerves are connected to the brain and one must be very careful with any injury or anyhting else here.Who would have imagined thta a small pimple would have such a frightening turn?That is why one ought not to tamper with the pimple using a fingerI am telling you all this not to frighten you because you have already said thta youa re careful.But see thta you do not touch it and bear with the pain without touching it.THta episode with my son w as very scary.THe doctor who saw him initially referred him to a surgeon and he gave a very costly antibiotic --rs 400/- per vial[Indians would understand this -this was some 10 dollars roughly at that time.

i have had one inside my nose and it was very painful but word to the wise. never try to pop one inside your nose. my dad did and he got a life threatening infection from it and they were not even sure he was going to make it at the time but he did thankfully.

I usually have pimple on my face and sometimes they were in my nose precisely which makes me really uncomfortable . And i always wonder why i still have pimple all the time,although not too many,when i use skin cream and several kinds of skincare makeup regularly and protect my face from possible harm

hi tuckersheri^^;; we have the same thing. i guess pimples come out in a specific location. so whenever i have a pimple(though it happens once in a while), it usually appears in the nose whether outside or inside and exactly the same spot i rarely have one and just one or 2 at a time but i know how painful it is and the worst happened to me when i was in university and suffering from rhinitis. my nose was always watery at that time but this terrible pimple made the situation worse everytime i wipe my nose.. sometimes i get weird location where my pimples appear are in my ear or one of my eyebrows

I'm not sure if I have ever had a pimple inside of my nose or not. I know I have had sores in my nose before though. I am not sure if it actually started out as a pimple though.

It seems that the only time I ever get a pimple on my nose is when I see someone with a pimple on their nose. My first reaction would be to silently hope that I won't be as unlucky to be in THAT situation. Then, the next morning, whoa! Guess who's got a pimple on their nose? ME! Yeah, that's right!I think the best way to deal with the situation is to hibernate in the house for a while till the ghastly bump goes away, but then, we still have lives to lead. So, try using an ice cube to reduce the swelling and then dab a bit of toothpaste on the bump (yes - you read correctly - TOOTHPASTE) before you go to bed. The next morning, the swelling would definitely have been reduced. To hide the redness, use a bit of concealer (I wouldn't recommend using concealer to the guys, but, hey, if you're as vain or comfortable enough in your skin to use make-up, go ahead...) when you need to go out and face the world.

Yeah, I definitely have. I think anyone who goes through puberty will get a pimple on their nose at some point. Those who don't...I HATE THEM AND I WISH THEY WOULD SUFFER LIKE THE REST OF US!! *ahem* Yes...I normally just put on anti-pimple cream and hope it goes away soon. Ohyeah, and not touch it...because having it scar would be so much worse than just having a pimple on your nose.

Yes i have had. it sucked. The nose does tend to be more sensative on the face than other skin . What helped me get my pimple to go away was hot compress. just getting a rag dipping it in hot water and applying it to your pimple area.

Yes, I understand your feelings,because I have the same experience, more of a face I am very worried, I often hand them torn, bleeding,so I am very painfui,or even not the mood to do things.

Hi tusker...! I have got pimples on my face. particularly it will be very painful if it is placed on my nose. Actually pimple is due to the oil blocks in the face. The oil content in the face get accumulated and hardned. This gives pain when we try to bring it out. Just leave your pimples so that your face dont get damages and have face wash atleast 2 hours once so that you can avoid pimples by removing the oil over face. Have a beautiful face by just washing your face in fresh water regularly.

I rarely get pimples but when I do it's really big and it's usually in the nose area. I agree with you that it is really really painful and I slight touch could lead to a teary pain

Obviously you need to keep your face clean in an attempt to avoid pimples. However, pimples will even appear on the cleanest face. I do have advice if the pimple is really painful and infected looking. I don't really as a rule recommend "popping" a pimple. However, if you do this, use a needle to pop it and then use hydrogen peroxide on the pimple site. I have done this in the past and the pimple site dries up and is clear within a day or so(depending on how infected it is).

Uhm, I really hate goosebumps, but unfortunately, I have them too. But rare that it grows on my nose. Well, I too will also get irritated whenever it does. I have these pimples since 4 or 5 years ago, and to tell you, it has destroyed my skin. I'm wondering when will they stop..

Yes, and it hurts like hell. There's nothing I could do until the swelling went down. Luckily it only happens once every 4 or 5 years.

I used to have that problem when I was in school. It will pop up before my date, events or just any significance day that I want to present myself without any zit on my face. Worse, it show up there, on my nose, where everyone will notice it right away. I tried everything to remove it before the big day. It's a good thing I don't have it there anymore.

I hate getting pimples on my nose. It makes my nose looks bigger, and also it makes me look like an old witch. I don't like that, like, it's on the center of your face, it's so obvious and annoying 'cause people keep staring at it.

yes..and I hate it! lol.. although not very often, what i do is wash my face with a mild cleanser. I also use clarifying toner with salicylic acid which kills pimple causing germs. And to dries out skin imperfections.
