Definition

Inflammation of the nasal vestibule commonly results from folliculitis of the hairs that line this orifice; Systemic antibiotics effective against S aureus (such as dicloxacillin, 250 mg orally four times daily for 7–10 days) are indicated; Topical mupirocin (applied two or three times daily) may be a helpful addition; If recurrent, the addition of rifampin (10 mg/kg orally twice daily for the last 4 days of treatment) may eliminate the S aureus carrier state; If a furuncle exists, it should be incised and drained, preferably intranasally; Adequate treatment of these infections is important to prevent retrograde spread of infection through valveless veins into the cavernous sinus and intracranial structures----------[CMDT 2005]-----
