Lump in middle of nose....

I have had a lump kind of thing on my nose for a few years now. Its not that noticable, but It does bug me a lot....I'm pretty sure it is a scar. Is there anything I can do to tone it down or remove it?

Hi,

I have 8 of those things on my nose for the last 5 years. I finally found out they are not acne but sebucous hyperplasia (enlarged oil glands) this condition is caused by cystic acne after they have enlarged your oil glands.

Treatment is laser or dermabrasion.

My 2 cents go straight to a plastic surgeon instead of a derm. My derm was pretty useless I went to him 2 years and he did literally nothing to heal my acne. However he did manage to scam $3500 from my insurance coverage for all the visits I made to him.

Hope that helps. :-({|=
