Hello

 

Can you please provide more description of spots?

Are these like pimples or just discoloration spots?

Are these itchy?

Are there any scales on these spots?

Is there any redness or swelling when spots appear?

how often do you get these?

what makes these spots disappear?

Please provide more information.

 

Thank you

  1. Start off as red pimple that forms a white/cream head.
  2. no they dont really itch or feel uncomfortable
  3. no scales on the spots ~ just a white pussy head
  4. yes there is redness and swelling prior to a head forming
  5. continually ~ can have a clear nose for two weeks then out of nowhere there will be a break out
  6. They break out into a white pussy head which i squeeze to leave a red blood scab. this will then stay for several days until it flakes off with new skin coming through.

on a good day the nose can be clear of any blemishes. but then for no reason it can form a red pimple and then it will be blemished for several days with an embarresing red spot. i am now 44 and have suffered with this for as long as i can remember.

is there something i shoud be cleansing / washing with or anything else i should be doing or avoiding?

HiCustomer

Your description and history is in line with the diagnosis of Rosacea. In its milder forms, as in your case, there may be frequent recurrences with red acne like bumps on the nose or cheeks or on both, which are triggered by various reasons like, hot spicy food, stress, sun exposure, alcohol etc.

Treatment is avoidance of the triggers, regular use of sun protection creams and treatment with doxycycline or metronidazole cream.
