Report Final Appeal in Guests Posted October 11 23 hours ago, Guest Jennifer said: I have rosacea on my nose. I have had it for 3 years, with little notice, but now it is getting really bad with bigger pores and bumps getting bigger and bigger on top and sides of my nose. I have taken the 2 prescription medications recommended with poor results. I have had it scraped 1 time 2 years ago but it did nothing. I have alcohol a couple times a month. Does anyone know what can slow down the process on the nose please? If you have been diagnosed with Phenotype 5, it usually responds to treatment quite well.
