Great to have found this site. Recently, i've noticed i've been getting tiny red spots on the nose. They come and go but i noticed they never get big but just a red dot. Most of the time, there's a tiny pin sized whitehead in the middle but unlike acne, it never grows to be a whitehead. Just stays that small pinsized size and thats it. Could this be rosacea? Any other symptom i should pay attention to which might validate it as one?
Also, 3 months ago in early Nov, i started with a few bumps on the forehead. Since then, i've had blotchy rashy bumps on the forehead and my derm says its Seborrheic Dermatitis. I also get the red at the side of the nose.
As for the red spots on my nose with the pinsized whiteheads, i sometimes get that on the forehead too and on the cheeks. And when they come on the cheeks, there is some itching.
My derm is confident that it is SD but i just want to make sure with you guys. Rosacea seems to get worse if untreated so i'm hoping the spots are part of my SD and not Rosacea or else i guess i'm trying to treat it wrong. Looking for some input. Thanks everyone!
