I Have Wrinkles on my Nose (The Tip Area), Very Distressing, Never Seen Them Before on Anyone Else?

I am a woman in my forties going through a time of stress. These lines on my nose seem to have appeared overnight. I do have a slightly upturned bulbous nose, and the tip does sometimes move when I talk, could this cause this? I am very distressed and no longer want to leave the house. Fillers have been suggested but offer no permanent solution and is it not dangerous to fill the tip? Even when I google this issue, nothing! cannot upload picture at the mo but could try later. thanks

Wrinkles on tip of nose

Your description is suggestive of rhinophyma or a bulbous tip of nose potentially associated with rosacea. Either way without seeing it I would suggest you follow up with a dermatologist before making treatment recommendations.

Lines of your Nose:

Hello,  I have seen this but inorder to make a recommendation would suggest photos.  These lines are common in thich skinned areas (tip of nose) and may become more prominent with excessive swelling (after workout, stress,allergies,etc.) A light (water based moisturizer which you should keep refrigerated would be helpful. Would not suggest fillers until your photos are reviewed.
