Teenager with a Red Nose

This 14 year-old girl has had a red nose for the past two years. It followed as severe sunburn. Her nose never looks normal. Occasionally, there are small cysts with bleeding and purulent drainage.

I have seen this picture occasionally in teenagers. It looks like a rosacea variant. I'd also consider demodex.

Your suggestions are anticipated and will be welcome.
