I often pinch my nose and then my nose gets bigger and hurts. Is the nose going to shrink again yesterday?

Hi Shirves, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com

Enlargement of the nose is accompanied by pain as you are experiencing, possibly due to an infection in the skin of your nose that causes acne (acne) to appear on your nose. Another symptom that you can find is a red nose and feels hotter. Other possibilities that can cause an enlarged and painful nose include:

insect bites
rhinophyma (a condition where there is thickening of the nasal skin and enlargement of the oil glands in the skin of the nose, giving the appearance of a large, lumpy nose, rough surface and dilated blood vessels under the skin),
tumor on nose

To be able to determine the exact cause, it's a good idea to see a dermatologist for further evaluation and treatment. If it is caused by an infection in the skin of the nose, then your doctor can provide therapy with antibiotics to treat the infection. If it is caused by rhinophyma or tumor, other therapies such as surgery can be recommended.


For a while before going to the doctor, you should not touch or pinch your nose. Doing both of these things can cause the infection to get worse and spread to surrounding healthy tissue. You can help reduce the inflammation that occurs by applying a cold compress to your nose. Compress for about 10 minutes 3-4 times a day. Wash your face regularly as usual, do not use soap that is too harsh because it can cause facial skin to become dry and easily irritated.

That's all the information from me, hopefully it's enough to answer
