    There was a posting here about 2 months ago asking for help regarding a
skin disorder.  The following is an ad from Reader's Digest July 1994 and I
believe it was the mysterious condition he described.  I could be wrong but
here it is anyway.

"Rosacea is an adult skin disorder which, if untreated, tends to worsen over
time.  The first sign of rosacea may be as simple as a redness of the face,
resembling a blush or sunburn.  Without early treatment, the condition may
develop into acne-like pimples and thin red lines due to enlarged blood
vessels.  As rosacea worsens, the nose may become swollen, red, and
disfigured from excess tissue, a condition often associated with the late
comedian, W.C. Fields."

To receive more information mail to:

The National Rosacea society
220 South Cook Street, Suite 201
Barrington, IL  60010

    I hope somebody remembered that old posting and alert the netter of this
information.  Hope this helps.
