Rhinophyma is a condition in which the nose appears enlarged, swollen and bumpy, and red. Most common in men, rhinophyma is a symptom of severe rosacea, a blood vessel disorder and skin condition that causes chronic redness and inflammation in the face.
Surgery is sometimes used for rhinophyma to help improve a person's appearance.
