Second opinion on nose redness?
avatar
NBNWV posted:
The inside of my nose has been red for the past 2-3 weeks. No pain or headaches, but very red.

My allergist looked inside and said that it was from my nasal spray and I should back off it. But, overall, I should be fine.

I'm a little paranoid from getting MRSA staph infection on my lower back years ago, because it's also known to attack the nasal cavities, no? Should I take my allergists' word or get a second opinion?

Thanks to anyone who can offer input.
