Dry red spot on nose
An_207664 posted:
I have had a dry red spot on the right side of the bridge of my nose. It started out as intermittent but for the last couple of years, it has been a permanent fixture. I have tried neosporin, vaseline, various olds and lotions but nothing helps. Any suggestions?

Hi Anon_150481,

Please visit your doctor if you have a lesion or a spot on your nose that isn't going away. Realize that our WebMD health professionals aren't able to diagnose anyone over the internet.

This Slideshow: Precancerous skin Lesions and skin cancer may be useful to you. Try also using the Symptom Checker tool to find WebMD articles before you contact your doctor.

Take care!
