The links below provide information on skin conditions that can affect the nose of adults. Many of these conditions are harmless but are an annoyance because they affect the cosmetic appearance of the face. Acne, the scourge of teenagers, will often involve the nose in adults as well. Rosacea is a chronic type of acne that is common in adults. Damage from long-term sun exposure on the nose is common because it receives more sunlight than other parts of the body. Both pre-cancerous growths and cancerous growths occur on the nose. Some examples are actinic keratosis, melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma. New skin changes and growing moles should be evaluated by a physician.
