Hello Ronn,

My husband has the same familiar bumps on his nose (he's had them since we married over 10 years ago). They never really bothered him until last year, so he finally made a Dermatologist appointment. The Doctor stated that he had never seen something like this before and shaved off a layer of skin from his nose (he was screening for cancer). Well, thank God, the tests came back negative but there still wasn't a medical label to call this condition. Although he did prescribe Retin-A for treating the affected area, even though there hasn't been much success.

IMO, maybe you should book an appointment with your Dermatologist. They could possibly be cysts - something very treatable. Good luck.
