Hi all, me again :)

Another quick question for you lovely people ;)

I get ulcers in my mouth on and off, but my question is i often get really painful spots up my nose :worried: they really hurt but they look more like a white-head spots are these ulcers or spots and does anyone else get them? i get them every few weeks and theyre really sore! Gross! Are they anoother autoimmune symptom or something else?

Thank you for reading, Hope your all as well as poss ;)

Hi friend,

Yes, I get the same sores up my nose..I use a steroid ointment, that my dr. prescribed.

Best Wishes,
Thank-you for your replies, and sorry to hear you get ulcers too :(

However the ulcers i have up my nose look more like spots with a white head (gross) and sometimes bleed a little, is this what they look like or do yours look more like ulcers?

Thanks again x x x x
Hi Bex,

The ones I get in my nose don't seem to have any white head on them they look similar to the mouth ones. Start out as a red lump and then break to form a crater type thing. Too much information I'm sure :lol: but anyway gives you an idea of what they are like. Just getting over a particularly large and troublesome one myself! I would try and show yours to the GP and see what he thinks.

hey, yeah mine are more like what lily just described. your doc will know x
I also get the mouth ulcers and the sores in the nose, especially if I am flaring.

Found this link on nose and mouth sores.

I get these in my nose too. Seem to occur at the same time I have them in my mouth. Actually, I don't know what they look like--they just hurt! Hope you get relief soon!
