Swollen red nose

Hi looking for some advice on this ongoing symptom. I have diagnosed CFS but they are now looking at sjogrens. My nose has become swollen on tip and red around nostrils it just feels stiff very dry dry dry.

My GP doesn't seem very worried has just put it down to another symptom. I have asked to see ENT

consultant and have apt in about 8weeks. I'm worried it could be an infection, forgot to mention she thinks its rosacea can that make your nose feel stiff and uncomfortable it sort of comes and goes.

Thx TT
