She developed heavy acne and noticed that the quality of her skin began to degrade, which isn’t exactly unheard of for teens, but things quickly got worse.

“Puberty set in, acne set in — it got to be really bad,” she explained in an appearance on The Doctors. “The bumps became purple, and red, sometimes tissue would come out of it.”

It would be more than thirty years until she finally got the help she needed for this condition, which at age forty-six, she now knows is an advanced form of rosacea called rhinophyma.

“It has stopped me from leaving the house,” she said. “I had anxiety for a long time.”

Looking for any possible help, Pamela appeared on an episode of The Doctors to describe her experience with such an unfortunate medical condition.

In a fortunate turn of events, after being interviewed about her case of rhinophyma, Pamela was offered free surgery by Dr. Ann Zedlitz to correct the growth of her nose.

Remarkably, Dr. Zedlitz was able to transform Pamela’s nose in just three months, and wants others to know that if they also suffer from this condition, treatment options are available.
