Patient

Q: Over the past 2 years or so I have been having recurring spots on my nose . The spots were always more violent on my nose and fuller with puss and blood. When burst the spots would fly open like there was an immense amount of pressure behind them. It was averaging about 3 spots every three weeks and seemed like they would never stop. As a teen, at the age of 14 when started, i was told the spots were natural so i tried to keep my face clean and use lots of creams to stop the spots. Eventually the spots stopped coming back late last year September/October time but has now replaced by a red swelling. My nose is always red and looks is inflamed and is quite embarassing in social situations. The spots ended a long while ago but it seems as if the swelling is still there. Im unsure how to get rid of it. Any diagnosis or feedback would be greatly apreciated. Thanks
