How can I treat these bumps on nose / Acne Scars on Nose? Please help!

Recommended Posts

When I was 15-17, I got a lot of acne on my nose which left scars up until now (I am 21 now).
The bumps are very noticeable as they are big and I got too many. I've tried many products on my nose, but so far none have worked at all.
Below are some pictures
Please let me know some treatments

@needhelpplz These could be all sorts of things. Clogged pores, or Sebaceous Hyperplasia. Please goto the dermatologist. They will use a electric needle to open them up or laser. Possibly they will give you a cream. 

Occasionally if they are hypertrophic / raised they will inject steriod to make them go down.

I have many of them on my nose (10 years now). I tried cortisone shots (5 sessions). It worked very well and they got disappeared, however they reappear back after 2 weeks after every session. I tried microneedling, many types of strong co2 lasers, and nothing hasn't worked too unfortunately.

@feverish If they come back in two weeks your not treating the cause. Hypertrophic scarring is a excess of tissues the body produces in a inflammatory way. Your body attacking itself. There are some medications to help with this, see a general derm to get it under control.

Show the provider this article and ask if there is anything they have to stop them: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S001429991930144X

Also you may need to have them scraped off by a derm or electro surgery or even excision. Be aware you must use silicone sheets on the area for compression nightly to prevent re-occurrence.
