Will I Develop Rhinophyma?


Recommended Posts

Frequently some are concerned that if they have a red nose that they will end up like WC Fields, the rosacea poster boy. This is due to a misunderstanding that rosacea progresses in stages which has been debunked. While it is possible if you don't treat your rosacea (or your red nose) it may get worse, it certainly does not mean that it will necessarily get worse or progress into 'stages'. Obviously WC Fields didn't care about whether his nose got redder or turned into rhinophyma, so it is good you are concerned about your red nose. The good thing about rhinophyma or what is more recently classified as Phenotype 5 is that this is the most successfully treated rosacea phenotype (scroll to the subheading TREATMENT in this post for the list).
