Customer Question

Hi all

I 40 years old and have dry sensitive but reasonably good skin.

The last year I am guessing due to age, sunshine Etc I have developed static lines running down my nose . Bunny line type lines but they are very static as well as dynamic.

I look like a angry witch!! What treatments could you recommend? I've tried every cream and nothing works so I may have to look to a treatment of some sorts.

Kind regards

Hello Julie,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Have you had any physician exam
Any lab tests
Do you have any medical problems.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I haven't had any examination or lab tests. No medical problems although I have a 5 week old baby so am currently breast feeding. So I know I am unable to use certain products

You need to see your doctor, as in rare cases you can have a thyroid problem, or a nutritional deficiency.
Have you lost weight?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
No I haven't lost weight, aside from what I would have lost having a baby.

My thyroid could cause my lines on my nose?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 4 years ago.
Many things can do that
Hormonal changes.
Nutritional deficiencies....

I would not simply treat this without an exam.

Calendula ointment is safe.
You can get it from any health food store until you see a doc.

For expediency, having a dermatologist do an exam...which everyone should have at least now and then fast and effective.
