Patient :I was punched a year ago. Ever since I have had nose beliefs and scabbing on the inside of my nose. The scabs have been so big I've resorted to picking. The other day I noticed that I'd picked a hole in my septum. I live in the uk. I know surgery may not be an option but I need to try and keep this infection free, also free of scabs. I also work in the care sector and recently we had someone that has mrsa. I'm worried that I may have this and this is why my nose will not heal. I'm female, age 30
