(Mental supports needed) Male with a mildly red nose
I am a male, new to this forum, hoping I could gain some mental supports by hearing everyone's else stories.
So what is bothering me now is that whether or not having a few tiny dilated vessels on my nose(very tiny, like a network within a 1mm radius) necessarily means that I have rosacea? I have been seen by 2 doctors and was diagnosed as "seborrheic dermatitis". My nose does not swell all the time. If it does, it is mainly when the temperature is very hot. The nose has been like that since I was 16 years old.
I have read about the 3 stages thing online and am horrified that i would later in my life end up having lots of bumps on my nose. I am so depressed thinking about it and feeling my life is gonna end. (I am living in a very crowded city where people living here are cruel and insensitive) I can't afford looking like one of those men that show up on google pictures after typing "rosacea" as search words. (Sorry to say that. I don't mean it)
My question is that if it is normal to have dilated blood vessels on your nose while not having rosacea?
