I decided to put my pictures here, because "picture tell more than thousand words" Im 18 and I've had this rosacea on my nose now about 4 years (im really starting to doubt is this even rosacea because all the other rosaceapictures i've seen doesn't look like this :o). I've tryed already tetracyclines (3 months), metrogel and some natural products but for those metrogel seems to be only thing which cleared up little bit that upper rosacea-area. Now I am currently taking accutane 20 mg/day and im on second month, but I really can't see difference yet Besides that redness there is lot of sebum inside there. Accutane seems to stopped production of sebum from everywhere else but not at nose :?
Here are the pictures (you really cant see whole thruth for these pictures)
11.9.2005 (still some summer tanning)
8.1.2006 (I sniff my nose that the redness would show up)
All those triggers gets my nose annoyingly red and it starts to swell. After all my nose looks in any case bigger than it would normally look. Anyone has had same kind of nose or symptoms and got rid of it? Please tell me how. Could I get to surgery for this, because im really already thinking about it. Please help!
