How to Get Rid of a Boil on Your Nose

By Judith Green

A boil comes from bacteria entering a break in the skin and infecting an oil gland or hair follicle. The immune system sends white blood cells to kill the bacteria, which causes the abscess to grow into a red, painful boil. According to Mayo Clinic, boils are most common on the face, neck, buttocks, armpits and thighs. As the boil grows, it forms a yellowish head. This is embarrassing, especially in very visible areas, such as your nose. You can do a few things to help make a boil on your nose disappear.

How to get rid of a boil on the nose.
Apply heat to boil several times a day.

Step 1

Apply a warm moist compress by folding up a wash cloth. Run hot water onto the cloth and hold it on the boil until it cools. Repeat several times a day.

Step 2

Fight the urge to squeeze or open the boil. This will only prolong the boil and spread the infection.

Keep skin clean to avoid spreading the bacteria.

Step 3

Wash your nose regularly with antibacterial soap. You want to keep the germs away.


Step 4

Apply peroxide with a cotton swab over the boil a few times a day.

Step 5

Cover the boil lightly with a topical antiseptic after each cleaning.
