View Full Version : Skin peeling on tip of nose

11-26-2005, 09:16 PM
I've had basal-cell carcinoma in the past (on my temple), so I'm hoping this isn't related. The skin on the end of my nose has been peeling a bit for about a month now. It's also more red than usual. Anyone know what this could be due to? There's no bleeding.

I do not know what region you live in but the sun can real often cause problems. Mine can get real red and peels and can look terrible. About five years ago I went to a dermatologist about it and he lazed it off. Said it would have to be done every year to look good. Well all of five weeks later it looked about the same so I have just put make up covering it now. He said this would not do any harm. I try and stay away from the sun. Take care.
