Bump inside nostril

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi, for several months I've had a strange, hard feeling growth in my left nostril. it seems to sometimes recede and then reappear. It doesn't hurt but just bothers me by its presence.

I DID do one of those wax things last year to rip out nose hair so not sure if it might be an ingrown hair as a result of that.

I managed to take a photo of it. Curious if anyone can identify what it likely is from this?

Thanks. imageimage

    As Anne said, it could be a little wart, but it could also be an inflamed hair.

    I say that because every now and then (especially when I have rhinitis attacks and rub my nose a lot) I get these super painful little bumps that go away in about a week.
