Hi everybody!

I started noticing that I have unusual redness around my nostrils. Basically the crescent-shaped skin fold where my nostrils connect to my face is always redder than the rest of the face. First, I thought it was due to some inflammation/acne, but it has been long time already and the area seems clear of inflammation. I have also noticed that when I stretch the skin, I can see some small blood vessels in there.

What the hell is this and how do I treat it? I am male, 22 years old, I don't think I am supposed to have that.

Rosacea/broken capillaries, happens at many ages. There really isn't a cure except laser. Sorry.

Yup. I have it around it my nose. Have had it for years. It gets red on some days, and some days it's not noticeable. Do you get dryness in that area too?

It is generally not dryer than the rest of my face.

Well, crap...
