Rosacea and Rhinophyma

Rosacea, a chronic inflammation of the skin, is a pronounced form of erythema of the nose and face. At the beginning of the disease, spilled red spots appear on the skin as a result of vasodilation. Subsequently, around them there is a proliferation of connective tissue in the form of nodules, gradually acquiring the character of lobed outgrowths of a blue-crimson or pale red color. Such painless hypertrophic formations, while continuing to increase, can greatly disfigure the shape of the external nose (Fig. 2.6.1) and are called rhinophyma (nasal fungus).

As etiological factors in the development of rosacea and rhinophyma, habitual constipation and other disorders of the gastrointestinal tract are considered. A well-known role is played by regular alcohol abuse and permanent chills of the skin, observed in individuals whose work is associated with a constant stay in the field in the cold season. Endocrine disorders of the menopause of women and men are also important. The diagnosis of the disease is easily established with one external examination.

In the treatment of rosacea, topical applications of 10% resorcinol ointment are used locally. A. G. Likhachev recommends sulfur-resorcinol paste (Sulfuris depurati -40.0, Resorcini -2.5, Pastae Zinci -40.0). Ointment is applied at night to the nose and adjacent affected areas of the face. In the morning, it is washed off with warm water and soap. Quartz radiation has a beneficial effect. Local treatment should be combined with general, aimed at eliminating the causes of the disease - the appointment of appropriate diet, spa and drug treatment.

With rhinophyma, surgical treatment is indicated, which is usually carried out under local anesthesia. With a sharp scalpel, tumor-like formations are cut off over the entire thickness of the affected skin with the restoration of the lost nose shape. The skin plastic of the cleaned surfaces is usually not used, epithelization is provided by the epithelium of the glands remaining on the skin. The wound surface is covered with gauze squares with vaseline oil in the form of tiles. A sling bandage is applied from above.
