Question: How to get rid of a black spot on my nose (pic included)?


 lazyhazy101 - Thu Dec 31, 2009 11:02 pm

About 5 months ago I noticed a big black spot on my nose. Its came because of constantly pinching it trying to clear pores =/ Its been about 5 months now, and im tired of it. its really embarassing having that scar on my face. The pic I included show exactly how it looks.
PLEASE HELP ME. My self esteem has been seriously reduced by this. I tried a lot of things, but NO results. Nothing has changed since then. Thanks

User avatar Hello,The photograph shows a dark macule on the nose which may be consistent with a diagnosis of lentigo.These are benign and are brown to black.They can appear anywhere in the body.You can get a dermatologist who will examine with a dermascope and confirm the diagnosis.A sunscreen lotion and skin lightening creme are generally prescribed.Chemical peels or lasers are other options.Best wishes.
