Q: water blisters on nose

why do I get these recurring watery blisters on my nose? About once every few months my nose gets tough and a blister appears ... I seem to get a couple around the same area of my wrist at the same time too...

CHECK OUT Rosacea, it seems to be a genetic "affliction" for people whose ancestry is from the northwestern European countries.  I have it too--I have always flushed easily (after exercise or in sun, etc.) and as soon as I reached my late 30's I get these blisters and they flare up all over nose, chin and forehead between my eyes...  It seems it is bacterial and you need specific anti-rosacea creams to battle it.  If you don't do anything it could eventually lead to having to sport a bulbous looking nose, similar to what people may think is caused by alcoholism.  Check it out, visit your doctor.  It is quite common and many people have it to some degree.  Good luck.
