Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
You could have an overgrowth of capillaries as one possibility. This would be telangiectasia. This could be treated by a dermatologist with laser treatments. You might have a condition known as rosacea which commonly affects the nose and often the upper cheeks. This condition is treated with an antibiotic cream or gel. Rosacea causes increased flushing (redness) typically of the nose and oten the cheeks. The flushing may be made worse by drinking alcohol, hot drinks, spicy foods, and being in the sun. There are other possibilities as well. I would recommend that you see a dermatologist. There is no substitute for a direct exam in diagnosing a skin condition. The dermatologist will probably be able to diagnose the problem and offer a solution.

the skin on my nose is shiny too also peels a lot not to mention the red dots, what do i do.
I repeat that you need to see a dermatologist. The peeling would not be a symptom of telangiectasia but an overlap could be possible. Are you currently using anything on the skin? Acne treatments will commonly cause peeling. An infection or other type of inflammatory change will also cause peeling. Is your nose sore? That would be suspicious for a possible infection. If discreet bumps then you might have a folliculitis which is a bacterial infection involving the skin.
Let me know on these details. Best regards XXXXX XXXXX
