Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Have just tried to upload a photo - don't know if it attached? You can clearly see 3 areas of congestion: one on my nose, one next to my left eyebrow above my nose and one in the centre middle just below my harline

You should have 3 photos now - 2 close-ups, 1 full face so you can see them in context.

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, they seem to be blocked and enlarged glands and I would suggest using salicylic acid face wash regularly and see a dermatologist for extraction to unclog them.
