Why Do Some Alcoholics Get a Bulbous Nose?

Answer

Bulbous nose is a medical condition called rhinophyma. Even though bulbous nose is associated with alcoholism, this condition is not caused by drinking alcohol. The main cause of the condition is unknown but can be accelerated by factors like stress. Alcohol has been noted to make the pre-existing condition to appear worse. Rhinophyma is normally an aggravated case of rosacea.
