What causes nose skin peeling and lump?

My nose peels and cracks at the front area and sometimes the sides. It seems like the mucous in my nose (if it runs) adds to problem. I experience a tenderness. sometimes i get a bump or button in my nose and in my ear that pains. It seems as if my nose is slowing melting and i'm concerned

Thank you for using "Ask a doctor" service to post your health concern.

I read it carefully and I understand your worry.

But from what you are describing I think you have rosacea. To confirm this, please kindly upload a photo so I can have a look at it. Once I confirm that I can advice you which local antibiotic to take to treat the problem.

I hope this is helpful.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

I am a healthy 27 yr old male and noticed a lump on my front groin area. It is small (size of a dime approx) but tender to the touch. The skin peeled on it a bit and I m wondering if it is possible that it is due to irritation from rubbing against my belt buckle? It does not appear to be an ingrown hair.

Hi, I have a small hard lump at the top of the bridge of my nose. It reaches from the top of my nose, inbetween my eyebrows, to about a quarter up my forhead but it s not very lumpy, you can t see it but you can feel it and doesn t hurt or anything. It s under the skin. I was just wondering if there is anything to worry about?
