Constant Red Nose!

Hi!

ME: I'm female, 28. I smoke 5-10 a day & drink maybe once a month.

The problem I have is my nose is always red.
I'm of pale complexion and my nose stands out like a beacon. I always have people saying to me 'are you cold?' or more commonly 'your nose is red' !

I suffer in the winters with dry patches on my chin which go quite red, but generally i have no real skin problems.

Just my nose - all year round !

It's not swollen, painful, or bothersome in any other way than it draws attention to me ! Which i'm not comfortable with and would like to know now if there is a fix for this!

I blush easily, even when something isn't very embarressing, and i go VERY red ! I'm unure if this is relevant, but i've been like this for as long as i remember!

Has anyone heard of this before ?!

Many thanks for reading.
Rsbird

Re: Constant Red Nose!

Sounds like a mild case of Rosaeca. [url]http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/rosacea.html[/url]

Besides the red nose, the history of easy blushing is a tip off, it's very common with Rosaeca.

Re: Constant Red Nose!

Ah, thanks AuntieLeela. That sounds highly likely. Very informative link there too. Looking now, i can see blood vessels on the sides of my nose too.

Just not sure if at this stage i'd be wasting my GP's time? Think i'll keep an eye on it.

Thanks for your help!
