  • I have problems with that in the winter sometimes when the air is really dry. Using a humidifier (especially at night) can help. I also use a Neti pot or saline (non-medicated) nose spray, and that usually helps a lot. Sores that won't heal can be a sign of staph infection, lupus, or other problems too, so have your doctor take look to make sure it's just from dry air and not something more serious.

  • Are they cold sores? It is quite possible to get cold sores in your nostrils. If that is the case, you can get a prescription for an antiviral like acyclovir. I get them in my nose sometimes.
