Small area on bridge of nose that won't heal
Nov 30, 2014

Small area on bridge of nose that won't heal. It appears to get better, but reappears and may bleed when the area is dried with a towel. Seems to reappear after being exposed to sunlight several times.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

It's difficult for me to know precisely what's going on with your nose via the web, but any non-healing lesion on the skin should be evaluated by your care provider. Your description is concerning enough that it should be checked out.

Feel free to write back with any details or follow up. Be well, BY
