I am new around here and recently posted about my red nose and chest flushing. I have not been diagnosed with rosacea and I am not sure that is what I have. Lately my nose feels very swollen on the inside and sometimes burns on the inside as well. I went walking tonight and the weather was cold. When I came inside my nose was bright red and my face was blotchy.
I also suffer from allergies and urticaria so I guess my allergies could be the cause of the burning and swelling. I did develop a pustule on the side of my nose (im the sweat gland) and have some small white bumps on my forehead. My forehead also feels tight (also could be from allergies). When I am walking outside, my nose burns inside from breathing in air. It's the feeling of swelling inside my nose that is really bothering me.. it is very uncomfortable.
I know that you cannot diagnose, but does this sound like rosacea or just alleges? Can your nose turn red and swell from allergies?
If this is rosacea, is it possible to get it under control so I can live a normal life? I am extremely worried about my quality of life. If it is rosacea, I am hopefully catching it early...will it progress if I treat it? Can laser therapy help to keep it at bay?
Any feedback would help so much. Like I said, I am very worried and nervous about this.
