Red nose and peeling skin

I've been having issue with my nose. some red marks sometimes, and when I touch or apply some force on to my nose, it becomes red. Every morning, my nose becomes very flaky and the skin peels off. I do use moisturizer after washing my face. It has been like this since August. But after some time when I don't do anything with my nose, it has the normal color of my skin but, it sill have a bit of redness on my nose.

This could be rosacea.  That is an inflammatory condition.  Doctors may tell you to use a cream, but the cream may thin your skin and discolor it.  You may have better luck reducing foods that are inflammatory, such as sugar and grains and reduce sugary drinks.   Tea tree oil may help.  Google rosacea and see what other say.  I think it can be related to celiac disease.
