Pain on touching the nose.

Patient: Why does my nose hurt every time I touch the right side, but feels fine when I touch the left?

 

 

Doctor: The most probable cause would be due to folliculitis of the nasal hair in the affected side. This will usually clear on its own but may require antibiotics if the symptoms become severe.
