Customer Question
It seems to be thickening...
I have recently noticed a change in the surface of my nose., It seems to be thickening in spots. I have had rosacea for several years, and have used topical meds on occasion. I do not have alot of pimples or acne. I use Obaji skin products and Tretinoin seems to keep most of the problems at bay. My dermatologist has just prescribed Oracea for my nose problem. Is this the latest treatment? Should I use any topical creams, gels, etc. What can I do to keep my nose from becoming distorted? Thank you for your help.

So your dermatologist thinks this is from your rosacea?

You've posted this question more than once. I assume your answer was the dermatologist thought it was you rosacea?

She thinks it is the rosacea.
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 years ago
OK--is the thickening also accompanied by the typical redness of rosacea?

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.
