    I have been using a retinoid on my nose for 2 years. It is a long time i know and i think i overued it, especially since it is such a sensitive part of the face.
    Recently i have been getting a recurring blister on my nose, only happens though when i go out in the sun. its happened about 4 times in the last 2 years. It usually bursts and heals within 2 weeks.

    The skin atm is red and dry because i had one 2 weeks ago and have not stopped picking at it since.

    is this blister caused by a reaction? or is it contact dermamtitis?
    or is it BCC? Im only 19 and dont use tanning beds, but some pictures of superficial bcc look like dry red patches...

    thank you all
