Since you have rashes on your nose avoid over exposure to the sunlight, alcohol, hot beverage or spicy food. Rashes are commonly caused by irritation, allergic reactions, environmental factors, etc. Medical conditions that can cause red itchy rashes are contact dermatitis, rosacea, lupus, sunburn, windburn, spider veins, etc. You can apply hydrocortisone cream on the affected area. Aloe vera gel & calamine lotion are effective. Apply SPF sunscreen. Avoid chemical cosmetics & toning products, scented tissues, new laundry detergents.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
