Rhinophyma is a bulbous enlargement of the nose with a ruddy complexion and numerous pits along the surface associated with rosacea and overgrowth of nasal tissue. The sebaceous glands of the nose increase in size and number with each surface pit being the mouth of a gland. Although the disease is benign superficial skin infections are characteristic with drainage of foul smelling material. It is 12 times more common in men than women. The best treatment for severe rhinophyma is surgery under local anesthesia.
Health insurance covers the surgery if the overgrowth is so heavy that it collapses the nasal airway. In California the state also mandates coverage if the overgrowth is so great that a lay person looking at the nose would see it as abnormal in appearance.
