You are having acne. The redness of the nose is due to acne.

You should first treat your acne with over the counter acne ointments. Two types of ointments that you should try first are Retinoids like Differin and Benzoyl peroxide ointment.

You should also follow a good skin care regime. At night, first clean your face with soap and water. Apply an astringent. Then apply the acne medicine. Lastly apply a moisturizer gently. Follow this every night. This will help you greatly.

Avoiding the sun is most important. Wear a wide brimmed hat or a cap with a peak when going out in the sun. Using suncream with above 50% SPF is a must. This helps greatly.

This OTC regime should be sufficient, but if the acne persists, you need to show a Dermatologist.
