Red nose tender to touch

Patient: Thank u doctor s I have increase my runing distance from 5 to 8 miles but the last two times I ran I ve notice a rednes in the tip of my nose and when I touch it it stings a bit it does go away in a few hours but Im concern

 

 

Doctor: The symptoms that you have mentioned are suggestive of folliculitis of the nose. I would suggest that you do not repeate dly touch the affected area. You can take medication like advil, motrin to reduce the inflammation. This should subside on its own.
