First, step away from the mirror :) I know what it's like to see something wrong, even if it's minor and to have it "grow" in your mind. I suffer from health anxiety and it's taken me a long time to stop fretting over things. If the doctor didn't notice it, than it's probably nothing. Your tissue in your nose can be "faded" out from years of nasal sprays. My grandfather used the Afrin sprays several times a day for many many years...he was addicted to it too and developed the fine thin lines in his nose as well. As you know, this nasal spray wasn't meant to be used long term.
Now that you are off or getting off it, your skin and vessels should rebound back to normal. If it continues or if you really are concerned, you can make your own appt with an ENT - unless you need to be referred out?
