Hello,

Rhinophyma is a risk for fair skinned people and people who have a family history of rosacea. Rhinophyma is characterized by red, blotchy areas in the center of your face or recurrent bumps and pimples, often mistaken for acne. Not necessarily the bumps in the nose may be rhinophyma.

Rhinophyma often causes the connective tissue and oil glands on the nose to increase. there may be gradual growth of the nose into a swollen, bulbous shape. Get a follow up clinical examination done by a dermatologist. Get diagnosed and treated. Neglect may cause worsening of the symptoms. You will be given conservative treatment or recommended surgery if required.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Nupur K., General & Family Physician
