Alcoholic nose (Rhinophyma)
Chronic inflammation of the sebaceous glands can lead to an irregular thickening of the skin of the nose and nostrils: the so-called strawberry nose.
Often an extensive antibiotic cure will be prescribed against this inflammation, but this only suppresses the symptoms.
With a plastic surgery treatment the superficial skin layers are removed.
After the skin has been cured in one to 2 weeks as an abrasion, the glands can drain their sebum again and the skin comes to rest.
Treatment is possible under local anesthesia and in extensive cases under anesthesia.
