I have a patch of red skin on my nose. It is very dry, but doesn't itch or hurt or even bother me at all. It isn't a zit or a scratch, just a red patch. It has been there for almost a week now. I'm just not sure if I should be concerned.

I tried taking one but you can't really tell. I will upload the picture anyways, but it looks a lot worse in person. Ive had about 20 people ask me what happened. I wish I could answer them. Lol. Pic is coming in just a sec.

I wouldn't go without trying some OTC creams. Maybe try an eczema cream?

I get dry patches from time to time, too, especially in the winter.

Use a gentle exfolliant on your face before bed, then cover with a thick layer of night cream.   Keep moisturizing and exfolliating for a few days, and it will go away.

Put some cortisone cream on it. If it isn't gone in a week I would go in.
