If you have ever noticed someone with an oversized, red, bulbous nose you may wonder what causes this condition. An old adage is that this is caused by alcoholism – something that could not be further from the truth for many patients. In fact, this condition also known as rhinophma is often associated with advanced rosacea.
Rhinophyma can also lead to a fibrous thickening of the skin on the nose and extremely prominent pores. While normally not a health concern, rhinophyma is often an aesthetic concern for patients that even negative affects the self-esteem. Luckily, there is a way to treat rhinophyma.
