I get a painful sore inside my nose right before my period...Help!

The doctor says it seeps white blood cells which shows it is fighting some sort of infection. Man, it hurts like the Dickens and goes away if I put salve on it. Any ideas on keeping it from appearing?

  • What if you start putting the salve on a couple of days before you get your cycle. Maybe it will prevent it from coming on.

  • It could be a pimple. I get those once in a while and they hurt like hell. I put vaseline on it.

  • IS it a cold sore? Sometimes people get cold sores in their nose. I happen to be one of them. Your body is undergoing stress before your period.
