The symptoms of phymatous rosacea, also called rhinophyma, involve changes to the appearance of your nose. Your nose may develop a reddish, bulb-like shape. You may also have a thickening of the skin or a waxy, yellow surface on your nose. Sometimes with phymatous rosacea, you will have many oil glands on your nose as well.

If you have some of the symptoms of phymatous rosacea, talk with your doctor or dermatologist. Phymatous rosacea is a relatively rare disorder. Your symptoms may indicate another skin problem that warrants medical attention. Your doctor or dermatologist can help you understand the treatment options for your skin.
