My nose has changed shape over the past 4-5 months to becoming more saddled-shaped. There is a new dip/depression at the end of my dorsum before it rises to a pronounced tip. My left nasal side wall looks more collapsed when direct light shines on it and you can see a groove that was never there before.
My nostril shape looks and size about the same but only the dorsum and side wall is affected.
My nose has also been persistently numb for 3 years, it aches around the bridge and dorsum. I told my doctor about it and she doesn't think it is anything, and brushed off my concern.
There is no discharge, no runny nose, no crusting, no bleeding.
There is no cauliflower ear or ear cartilage affected.
Ive experienced a body rash twice over the past 6 months , not sure if that's a separate thing.
Does anybody know what this might be? Whether this might be an infection, a sympton of a disease/ condition/ etc. Is this some form of Vasculitis?
If it was an infection, would there be crusting and bleeding? How would you know if it was an infection?
How long does a nose take to collapse if it was cartilage deterioration?
