looks like i got punched

one day i noticed the bridge of my nose was red, so i examined it more closely And noticed all of these Dialated blood vessels. from a distance, it almost looks Like someone punched me in the nose.

i thought maybe this was from wearing tight fitting sunglasses so i stopped wearing them.

i Also thought this may be the Result of using nasal corticosteroids for allergies.

is this rosacea or something else? i hope i can get these removed b/c they really look gross.

Re: looks like i got punched

It depends on what these blood vessels look like, but dilated capillaries are actually pretty easy to accumulate. Alcohol consumption, caffeine, excercise, stress, and heredity are common causes. Talk to your doctor or an aesthetician to see if a laser treatment might be suitable for you.
