    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    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!

    - Annie
