Just seem to get red and painful and he can also have swollen glands when they appear. He has had a facial scan, and xray , nothing seems to be the problem. But the face is irritating to him.

Hye! Your husband would be having rosacea.. Swollen nose is Rhinophyma. Cap Minocycline 50 mg twice a day for 3 to 6 months, Metronidazole gel or azelaic acid cream will improve the disease. Avoid stress, heavy exercise, alcohol, spicy food, caffein containing drink, excessive heat or coldness.. to prevent the reccurence of the disease. Cosmetic surgery or laser would be helpful for better look. .. Ok
