Acne Rosacea Nose Phymatous

Dr. Thomas P. Habif, MD discusses Acne Rosacea Nose Phymatous. See more at PLEASE RATE AND COMMENT!!! Subtype 3 Phymatous rosacea Phymatous rosacea includes thickening skin, irregular surface nodularities, and enlargement. The term rhinophyma is used when these signs occur on the nose. Rhinophyma is the most common presentation, but phymatous rosacea may occur in other locations, including the chin, forehead, cheeks, and ears. The disease begins with persistent erythema. Telangiectasias and or prominent vessels appear and may become extensive. Papules and pustules form and the disease becomes chronic. Dermal infiltrates accumulate into nodular masses. Rhinophyma represents a severe complication of rosacea. Clinically, the nose of the affected patients, usually men, appears red, irregularly swollen, and bulbous, with prominent pilosebaceous dilated pores and telangiectasias. Multiple, firm, or soft, smooth-surfaced, red nodules and cysts can be observed. The nose becomes enlarged and may have a grotesque appearance. Patients with this subtype may have dilated, follicles in the phymatous area. Large amounts of sebaceous material can be expressed from the dilated pores. Small cysts may be numerous. Unfortunately, some people associate rosacea and rhinophyma with alcohol abuse; however, many patients who have rosacea neither drink alcohol nor report alcohol as a trigger for their rosacea.

    Don’t believe people when they tell you there is no cure for rosacea because there is. Well at least for me there was. I bought a cream from the UK called proskin rosacea by a company called mama nature. It is natural and they say on their website that because it contains a high level of tea tree oil it kills the demodex mites that cause rosacea. Admittedly my rosacea worsened when I used it but after that it gradually got better to the point now where it has gone (some scars are left).

    I had rosacea for twenty years until I tried a natural cream called proskin rosacea. It is a natural cream by mama nature and it kills the demdex mites that cause it.It worked for me but it did make my pastules worse initially (this happens when the mites die) but then it gradually got better. I still have some open pores and scarring. Redness, pastules etc.gone. It was recommend to me on a rosacea forum. This cream is expensive but it is a miracle and is well worth trying.

    How do you get rid of it? I have the very basic form of this, not the grotesque abnormalities, just persistent redness. Almost like 0:33 except without the blood vessels appearing.
