Author Topic:   Red spot on tip of nose
posted 12-03-2007 07:08 PM           Edit/Delete Message
Hi, my wife has been experiencing a red spot at the very tip of her nose for about 4 years. The last 3 years, when she has expousure to sun or cold, the tip of it will sometimes bleed slightly. She has seen a dermatologist a number of times. They have used Nitrogen on it and it more or less freezes the spot. This will clear it up for a period of time, then it comes back. The last year the spot appears to be getting slightly larger and may bleed slightly more often. My wife shall be a age 60 this month. Non smoker in last nine years, previously only smoked about 4 cigarettes per day. Rarely drinks alcohol. When she goes periodically to have a consulatation for make up. She is usually advised by the person doing the make up course how nice and flexible and in good shape her skin is. I went to a chinese herbalist today and was advised to give her 20 pills twice per day. of Pifubing Xuedu Wan. I noticed in another post, you do not appear to be pleased with this medication. Any suggestions to clear the red nose? Thanks

Hello Storm.

Thanks for writing.

Sir, "Not pleased with this medication", is an understatement! This "so-called formula" I would never, ever under any circumstance suggest or recommend to anyone.

You state:

The last 3 years, when she has exposure to sun or cold, the tip of it will sometimes bleed slightly.

So a protection is where to start. We know of a few good creams made with natural products, unless you want your dermatologist to help here.
As to the bleeding, if its gotten that far, I would contain it as much a possible and then apply Yunnan Paiyao, enough to cover the spot, the blood should begin to clot in seconds. Re-apply if necessary and as often as needed.

Until it is healed she should limit her outside visits.

After it begins healing she needs to supplement her immune system, and her skin issues need to be addressed properly with the correct formulas, we would be happy to do a total evaluation for her.
For more info on that, you may visit: http://tcmconsultants.org/index_files/Page540.htm

We hope this helps.
Do not hesitate to contact us again.
Good luck to both and Season's Greetings! H.
