redness under nose

i'm 23 and i don't get much acne, but i get the occasional zit under my nose around my nostrils. even if i don't have a zit there, i have redness under my nostrils

so i have a few questions --

-is the regime on acne.org still recommended to me?

-is there something i can do to reduce the redness?

neutrogena has a product that seems to be aimed at doing that ("Neutrogena® Oil-Free Acne Wash Redness Soothing Gentle Scrub") -- would acne.org advocate using it?

To be honest, I'm not sure if I'd use BP on a zit around my nose. It's a really sensitive area (at least for me) and I think it may burn. Have you tried putting pure tea tree oil on the area with a cotton swab nightly? Check Wal-mart/Target/Drugstores for Tea Tree Oil in the vitamin section. It helps calm redness for me. However, it does have a bit of a smell. Some complain about it, but I quite like the smell of tea tree. It's earthy and refreshing.
