Can you upload a close-up photo(s) of Kramer's nose to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see the icon) or you can use an external app such as I suspect that you're seeing hyperkeratosis but I can be more accurate if I can see what you're seeing.
