Sores and scabs can occur anywhere on the body, including in the nose. Sores in the nose are generally nothing to worry about. Apart from being a little uncomfortable, they usually clear up on their own or with minimal medical attention. There are several reasons why a person might have sores in their nose.

Due to their location, it's usually hard to see the sores. They may resemble small pimples or scabs if they're visible, and you may feel them. These sores may be caused by an allergy or trauma or, in some cases, an underlying health problem.


An allergy is a common cause of sores in the nose. Allergies can result in inflammation within the nasal passages, and the inflammation can lead to scabbing inside the nose. The scab may be tender to the touch, so it's best left alone to heal properly.

Besides scabbing and inflammation, individuals experience other symptoms, including watery, itchy eyes and itchy skin, as well as a constant feeling of needing to clear the throat and swallow. Allergies may be managed with a nasal saline spray to ensure the nasal passages don't dry out and medicated cream to fight inflammation and reduce discomfort.
