I have a patch...

I have a patch on my nose that doesn't hurt or itch, doctor says I have dermatitis around the creases of my nose but he doesn't seem to know what this patch is. I'm very worried

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

I don't have pain

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have Ehlers Danlos hypermobile type

I will try, I'm using my phone as I'm on holiday in the US.

Got it--thanks

How long have you had it?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
2 months

And have you treated this in any way?

I was given metrogel but it has done nothing
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I also think I'm in perimenopause

OK

That would be for rosacea--a kind of adult acne

But I don't think that's it here

This looks like more of a dermatitis like what's in the crease of your nose

Certainly doesn't look like any kind of skin cancer

I'd prescribe tacrolimus cream for both your nose and the creases and that should clear it all up in about two weeks

Please let me know if you need any more information

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
