one month post-op. closed rhinoplasty. the sides of the tip of my nose, meaning just above my nostrils, are red and irritated. i'm not sure if this is a sunburn because i do go out. i don't wear sunblock but i wear a cap which covers my nose. how can i know if this is an infection or just a sunburn?

If you were out in the sun, the skinny be a bit sensitive. If it is red and you were not in the sun, it could represent an infection, or other things. Best to be evaluated by your surgeon.
