Puberty is hard for most people. Your body is changing and your skin usually undergoes some unfortunate and humiliating changes.
One woman got more than she bargained for after age 15 when her nose began to grow at a ridiculous rate. It wasn’t until she received surgery many years later that she was able to live life to the fullest again, and you won’t believe her epic transformation.
Puberty Is Not An Enjoyable Time
It usually involves braces, blemishes, and a bunch of other unwelcome bodily changes. Thankfully, it is just a stage, but what if one of your features never really stopped changing? One woman’s life was changed forever by an unusual growth on her body.
Pamela Ichard Was An Average Teen
She started to get acne and blemishes at the age of 15. This is a pretty normal occurrence, but Pamela’s skin started to spiral out of control really.
Awful Acne Followed Her Into Adulthood
The blemishes would become so bad that they were sometimes purple, and Pamela didn’t know what to do to ease her skin problems. She didn’t know that her future skin problems would get much worse.
Her Nose Started To Change Its Shape, And She Was Devastated
She recalls after having her second child that her nose began to look different. It was growing, and she couldn’t stop it
For Over 30 Years Her Nose Continued To Grow Rapidly
It made her life extremely difficult. She suffered from anxiety and was afraid to leave the house due to her appearance. Her doctors found out that she suffered from rhinophyma, a rare form of severe rosacea.
Nothing Would Help Her Condition-No Matter What She Tried
Her doctors prescribed her many different types of medications, but nothing seemed to help. Pamela just wanted to live a normal life, and in 2016 she was granted a chance to have that once again.

She Was Offered The Chance Of A Lifetime
Dr. Ann Zedlitz offered to perform surgery on her nose to correct its size and shape. Pamela was obviously overjoyed.
