Rhinophyma is a large bulbous appearance to the nose.  The nose is often red and has bumps on the lower third of the nose around the tip along with enlarged nasal pores.  There can also be broken blood vessels on the nose and many patients have rosacea on the face.

It is caused by a bacteria and in mild cases antibiotics and creams can help.  As it progresses, more aggressive treatments are needed including dermabrasion and laser treatments.
