this is my third effort...
this is my third effort . i have to look good by august 8 as mother of the groom. however my nose at its rounded end has two points you can feel under the skin . these produce 5 or more " blisters" of clear liquid-- under the skin. pushing a nail into one, it leaves a crust from the liquid, i guess. and there seems to be entire strings of raised trails areas across the nose area - like a long extended blister- no liquid or little.   liquid pressure and pain .if i break one w/nail, then clear liquidis out , reducing the pressureized pain for a minute then refills for a couple days. then stops for a day. My nose has crust from the bumps /liquid?and no makeup can cover crusts UGH 3years dermatologists said this is rosacia and i took lots of antibiotics and creams. result? just the two spots now producing bumps w/liquid. even fungicide worked for two weeks but nothing longer. 1.what to do befor 8th ? Would plastic surgery or lazers that cut these bump producing harder spots out?

Hello Merry,

Congrats on the upcoming wedding. Rosacea is chronic and not all causes are known, which makes it difficult to treat. You should keep a journal of what seems to cause a flare up, so that you can avoid that. In the meantime, with one month before the wedding, I would get on oral and topical antibiotics as a quick emergency measure. I also strongly recommend that you consult with an expert at the healthfood store / natural market for new and natural treatments for you. You want to reduce the inflammation and the breakout. Do not rub or touch your skin to much, do not use products that contain alcohol, use products that are labeled noncomedogenic. These won't clog your (pores) as much.

When you wear makeup, consider using green- or yellow-tinted pre-foundation creams and powders, because they're designed to counter skin redness.

A good dermatologist should be able to advise you on an emergency treatment to have your skin look its best for the wedding. The truth is that this is a long term condition and you are looking for the best emergency measure.

You don't want to try anything too new and unfamiliar because you don't want any surprisingly unwanted effects. Look at the website below for more info on treatments and also surgical intervention is mentioned. I do not recommend it for you at this time because you only want to do things that are guaranteed to have a positive affect.

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/rosacea/DS00308/DSECTION=treatments-and-drugs

" Many over-the-counter skin care products contain ingredients such as acids, alcohol and other irritants, that may actually worsen rosacea."

Reply to Terry's Post: there is no way i can be certain i am locating a GOOD dermatologist. i have seen two and if office compleses mean anything ( i guess they dont) these were the worlds best or at least most impressive .

i am new here. there is no oe to ask. i slpent two or three years and its worse . so how would you find a GOOD dermatologist who is a researcher and more intelligent and multi faceted than the so all knowing idiots i have spent a bunch of dollars on as i look worse.
How to find a good dermatologist-what would you do really if you had to find a good one?????

Hi Merry,

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.
