Hi As the title suggests I am 24 years old and my nose is bright red! Well its not just my nose, it looks like I have a dodgy STD round my mouth and chin too (this has cleared up lately now though WAHOO!)! My nose would burn and peel just like sunburn, and for years I have suffered the teasing and torment. Deep down I have always known that this is not acne. However, I have not had the best experience with doctors, and they dismissed my Rosacea claims as I am too young.
They finally gave up on the Acne theory when I sat in the chair at the doctors and refused yet another treatment I have tried before, and refused another course of antibiotics which didnt help. They have finally referred me to a derm appointment, where to my releif they said it was rosacea! I am on Rosex, and this seemed to help for the first two weeks, its calming down, but the redness is not really reducing all that much. Give it time i am sure it will work.
Anyways hi and all that. There is hope for us all!!! Has anyone tried the trigger diary you can download, has it helped identify your triggers?
Take care, keep that nose up!
