Reducing oiliness of nose

08/01/2006

Question:

What kind of over the counter product would be best at reducing oiliness of the nose, especially without causing irritation? Thank you

Answer:

I would suggest that you use a waterless cleaner to cleanse your face several times a day.  Using alcohol and more harsh cleaning agents may lead to irritation.  There is really no pathology in oiliness.  It is your skins way in trying to control the integrity of your exposed skin.
