Well, since i was like 7 years old i've had a blocked nose. It's like whichever side i go to sleep on that side of my nose is blocked for the whole day and it's been like this since i was 7-8. Another big problem is i had a really nice shaped nose and when i was 16 years old it started growing huge spots on it and it was on my nose only and nowhere on my face, they came 1 after another but at one time i had 3 in 1 go. This carried on for a year or two and then it finally stopped and they were like the size of a skittle (skittles the sweet). At the same time my nose started growing really big and fat. I am now 20 years old and am left with a big nose with scars all over it. I've looked at pictures of when i was younger where i had a really small nose and I also started taking notice of all my relatives nose's but none of them have a big nose! My nasal structure is still small such as the bone and the nostrils but the cartilage around it seems to have grown.

Does anyone know if it is some type of disease such as rhinophyma? And would you suggest having plastic surgery and microdermabrasion to fix the problem as I find it hard living with a nose like this.

  • Rhinophyma is advanced stage of rosacea. Rhinophyma is illustrated by an enlarged, bulbous, and red nose resulting from the enlargement of the sebaceous (oil-producing) glands beneath the surface of the skin on the nose. It occurs more often in men than women. There are some “Laser treatments” available for Rhinophyma. But I would recommend getting it diagnosed from a specialist & then take required call about its treatment.
