I didn't know where to post this, so I figured I'd put it in the 'health'-y forum. I have what I'm pretty sure is an enlarged surface blood vessel in my left nostril. Maybe not enlarged, but ....raised. Drawn out. It's on the left hand side (inside), near the tip but not quite. As far as I know, I've had it all my life, or at least since I was very little. Occasionally it gets inflamed and hurts like hell. When it's inflamed, it gets swollen (obviously) and feels like a pretty large lump inside my nose. [When it isn't swollen, it's still a slight lump that's more hard than protruding] If it's particularly inflamed, the whole left hand side of my nose is hyper sensitive and painful. Try properly snogging in that state! Nose bleeds are another story. I've always just let it come down itself or, if it's really bad, used anti-inflammatory cream of some sort. Like I said, as far as I know I've had it all my life. I consulted a doctor about it once, but he was a frigging idiot and didn't help. So, do LPSG's medical buffs know how to get it gone?
