Small bumps on my nose? Is it removeable? And what is it? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 2
This is a condition known as rhinophyma. It needs either laser treatment or Infini treatment. It is usually associated with rosacea.
Bumps on the nose
Thank you for your question. It is hard to tell from the photo but this could be a type of rosacea called rhinophyma or it could be multiple fibrous papules. Both conditions are normal. It is possible to smooth the texture of the nose with ablative laser treatments or smaller areas could be treated surgically by shaving the bumps flat with the surrounding skin. After treatment the bumps may recur over time. I wish you the best!
