Hello, I need some advice for my grandmother. Recently, she had noticed the symptoms like dryness, tightness , acne pustules and wind burn also on her nose. But she omitted all these symptoms. Now, her nose skin is started thickening and the tip is forming like a huge red bulbous structure. I took her to the dermatologist and he prescribed some lotions and anti-antibiotics. But the condition is getting much worse. I think this is the condition Rhinophyma. I have read about cosmetic surgeons treating rhinophyma and one of my friend is a doctor, he mentioned me about Dr. Philip Solomon in Toronto ( ) But before meeting him, I need to know some information regarding the treatment. If anyone had any experience with this treatment please add your valuable information. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum.

There are probably few on the forum who have had this, but there are a couple of archived threads. Just put the term in the search box at the top of the page.

Sorry I can't be of more help.
Best wishes.
