Hi all. First time poster, long time lurker.

About two days ago I had a bump form right around the area of my nose. It's directly below my right nostril, pretty much right up against it, and I can feel it at the surface. It makes moving the right side of my nose extremely painful as I can feel a very firm pocket right below my nose, situated to the right of my filcrum. I visited an emergency care doctor (one of those Med Express inpatient checkup clinics that has a Doctor on staff) and he told me that it seems like a blockage of a pore and to put bactrum (sp?) cream on it, which he gave me a prescription for. That's all well and dandy as I have had cysts before (another concern of mine), but I guess the problem I am most concerned with is the swelling of my upper lip. Is there any reason this would be happening? Blockage of blood flow, for example? I searched all over Google and could not find any.

If anyone has had any cysts or anything like this blockage before and/or could just share some insight, I would be greatly appreciative. Thanks a lot and have a great day.

  • im getting almost the exact same thing, i have what i suspect to be a cyst inside my septum - the dividing bit in the middle. It makes tautening(sp?) my top lip excruciatingly painful and its also slightly numb to the touch, not completely but its certainly more dulled than it should be. It may be to do with blood flow or could be to do with the nerves being trapped by the cyst.Im sure the doc would have pointed out if it was something serious
