    Is this rosacea?

    Hi and welcome to the RF.

    What are your symptoms?

    It almost looks like you have some flakes on your nose/face which would make me think of seb derm.

    Here is a useful resource on rosacea for you to read and see if you see any similarity to your condition

    Best wishes,
    Melissa

    Thanks for the replies. Is there a way to edit my original post (so as to remove the photos)?

    It sort of looks like you might have some blocked pores/dermatitis but on the surface of itnot rosacea.

    May I ask what sort of symptoms you have besides what we can see. Do you have any flushing, itching,etc? What do you use on your face to moisturise/wash with?

    Any of the mods can remove the photos. Would you like them up for a while longer so that others can give their opinion?
