: Can anyone tell me If there Is something I can do to get them to go away. I'm 30 years old and they started about a years ago. Now I have three of them on my nose. It starts out as a bump and I scratch It cause I know Its there. I know I shouldn't. I have tried to not scratch It and the bump just gets more odvious and It don't go away. Anyways, After I do that It turns Into a very bright red spot. I have very light skin. It almost looks like a blood vessal? Very small but very odvious. Does anyone have some advice for me please!
This is the way my seb.derm. started out. About a year after that I was diagnosed with rosacea. My best advice to you is to get to a dermatologist ASAP. There are good treatments available but only by prescription. OTC products didn't work for me, but start by washing your face twice a day with Cetaphil Cleanser for sensitive skin. A good sunblock everytime you leave the house is helpful too. The key to successful treatment is early diagnosis and treatment. I just wish I hadn't waited so long.
