For the last couple of years i have had a reaccuring problem around my nose.Out of the blue after having perfect skin it started to become dry and chapped around my nose(nostrils)like when you have a cold.
But this comes when it wants.When i have a flare up of it the affected part feels tight and no matter how much moisturising cream i put on it is still dry.
I have been to the doctor and was given hydrocortizone cream which cleared it up a bit in time,but after a few months it's back again. I'm using the cream but it doesn't seem to be doing alot.The rest of my skin is fine, it's just this bit!It really gets me down as it becomes red and i have to put make up on it which makes it look worse!sorry this is long but i'm at my wits end! PLEASE HELP!what is it?
Also it sometimes becomes so chapped that the skin breaks(as i have thin skin) and i end up with sores on the outer edge of my nostril.
