How Do I Treat A Nasal Crease?
This is an unfortunate situation for your son. Nasal creases can appear when you rub your nose upward, often. This can occur in patients with nasal allergies. I would recommend getting a second opinion from a dermatologist to see if there are options for skin therapy to help minimize the nasal crease. Seeing a plastic surgeon may be helpful too. They can discuss other options to help with your son’s nasal crease. An immediate option may be to use concealer.
