Otolaryngologist Vladimir Zaitsev urged patients to never deal with acne or boils that appear on the nose on their own. According to MedikForum, the doctor explained that the region of the face, known as the nasolabial triangle, is supplied with vessels that directly connect to the vessels that supply blood to the brain.
If, when squeezing a pimple on the nose, some infectious agent penetrates into the opening wound, it can easily enter the brain.
“If the boil is removed incorrectly, the infection spreads throughout the brain,” Zaitsev warned.
According to him, the boils that form on the nose are strictly forbidden to be removed by yourself. The elimination of these formations should be dealt with exclusively by surgeons under conditions of proper sterility. Neglect of this rule is fraught without exaggeration with a mortal danger to a person.
“There is a possibility of a sharp abscess formation, thrombosis of the cavernous sinus, followed by brain abscess formation, that is, the phenomenon of secondary purulent meningitis,” the physician said.
