Does your nose ever turn so red when it's cold outside that you feel a little like Rudolph? Getting a rosy nose in the winter is 100 percent normal, so here's what to do if your nose is red. Most importantly, however, is to remember not to panic!
To figure out how to best address your red nose, it's important to get to the root cause. The most common reason for all that redness, according to eHow, is that your body is redirecting blood flow from extremities (like your nose!) towards internal organs in the cold. Then, it will "periodically dilate the constricted vessels to allow a brief burst of blood to flow into the area and then constrict the vessels again." That sudden rush of blood is what causes your nose to turn bright red!Another (and more painful) reason you're rocking a red nose this winter is because it's chapped. Yup, just like lips, your nose can get red, itchy, and irritated. And thanks to all of the cold and flu viruses going around this time of year, it's easy to end up with a nose in bright red agony!
For A "Rush Of Blood" Nose
1. Do Nothing
I know that's kind of an anticlimactic answer, but eHow shared that the redness will naturally dissipate once your body regulates its temperature again.
