    Default Strange P&PS or not?

    Hi to all who can advise me here. And thank you.
    In the last 10 days I have developed " paps" --- 2
    Of them that are different than anything I have ever
    Had. They look exactly like a bundle of capillaries slightly raised.
    They are brighter red than anything I've seen before.
    They do not have a " head" on them, they are surrounded
    By swirling of broken, new capillaries.

    I have tried treating with metrogel or sulpha but they are impervious.
    I should add that these 2 bumps are larger than a pencil eraser, they do
    Not itch and they are the only bumps on my face. Are these related to
    Rosacea? I have had only a couple minor flushes in last few weeks.

    Thanks. Birdie

    This sounds exactly like what I have near my temples. They won't freaking go away, though there are a few that have slowly faded, and when they did they left behind scars.

    What did you do to finally get rid of these papules?
