Red mark on nose

x_b_x profile image

Wasn't sure where to post this but for the past couple of months I have had this red dot on my nose. The pictures do not show it very well on here. It is a lot redder, I cannot feel it, it isn't raised or like a spot it is literally just a red mark. It is making me really self conscious, I hate the way it looks.

Should it be something I need to get checked out or be worried about?

I would says it’s acne.

The red mark in your nose is acne. This is most common among teenagers, though it affects people of all ages.

I had to cope with hormonal skin conditions myself, and there’s a likelihood that that’s what this is. It’s tempting to experiment with products, but if it doesn’t clear up, and you need peace of mind, ask your GP for an opinion.

As others say, most likely just a stubborn spot - I've had some that left a little bit of scarring behind (burst capillaries) that took a few years to disappear.

If it gets bigger I'd see a doctor to have it checked, just to be on the safe side. There are two types of skin cancer, and skin coloured lumps on the nose tend to be the less risky one: webmd.com/melanoma-skin-can...

Try some tea tree oil to start with
