    Given the fact he insists his treatment is a cure, surely he had something to say? Assuming you kept in contact of course.

    It is great you had three years of normality at least. Pity it didn't last. I do think his methods enable skin repair and normalization of the vascular abnormality, but the fact the flushing types return, suggests the cause maybe different to what he thinks it is.

    Sorry again. I realise this is the wrong thread for my questions, but well, I am curious as I expect many members are.

    Perhaps you could consider ZZ cream to retard the progression of the thickened nose skin?


    I didn't stay in touch with Dr. S, so I don't know why my skin relapsed. Now, I only put the solution from Dr. S on my nose, which does help beat back the skin from thickening, but it's not a long term fix. I've tried ZZ cream in the past and it really irritated my skin. I'm keeping things very gentle these days, except for my nose. I have to keep working on it.

    started a topic Rhinophyma and 660nm Red Light Therapy

    Rhinophyma and 660nm Red Light Therapy

    Hi folks,

    I'm back. My main question is this: knowing that I have the early stages of rhinophyma, is it advisable to try 660nm Red Light Therapy? Rhinophyma is, in part, a process of angiogenesis (new blood vessels forming), and Red Light Therapy is known to cause angiogenesis (which is good for normal wound healing, but bad for rhinophyma).

    Some background on me: 5 years ago I finished the Syrokomskyy treatment, which is super tough. I was very pleased with my results for about 3 years: the flushing, burning, stinging, tingling, itching were gone, and the constant skin growth on my nose was kept in check. Then, things started going down hill: my flushing, burning, itching, stinging returned, and worse, the nose on my skin continues to thicken. I've no pustules or papules, no swelling of the nose, just constant inflammation associated with the interminable "bubbling up" of new inflammatory spots on my nose, like little red spots under the skin.
Working...
