How do I know if it's a nose ulcer? What's a normal nose even look like LOL? I very freguently have visible swelling, strange ridges, etc. Touching the inside of my nose (with a tissue of course) is a big no-no for me as it is so sensitive to bleeding. Last night, I glanced up at my nose and noticed the left inside of my nostril was bleeding.. And not from any distinct area, but like it was secreting from one giant area.

Anyways, I heard that most Lupus ulcers typically aren't painful.. So how do you know?

I can't speak for anyone else but my nose ulcers hurt to the touch. They feel just like my mouth ulcers. The ones that right at the front of my nose hurt the most. When they are further inside they are less painful but do break and will bleed whenesses with

My nose ulcers hurt as well, much more than my mouth ulcers.
Believe me, you will know, if you have one, it hurts to blow your nose and after it is all dry, it hurts to move your nose( you know like a bunny).

Mine also hurt, alot, my doctor told me to use hydrocortizone 1%. It helped clear them up. You should ask your doctor about it.

Mine hurt a lot, too - kind of like when you get a zit really deep down. And they get a clear crust on them that hurts like CRAZY if I accidentally tear it off with a tissue or whatever...makes my eyes water!!!!! Then they ooze clear stuff until another crust forms. It's gross.

Sorry for the yucky detail, LOL...but sometimes you need to know this stuff, right? :-P

Hope that helps....
