For signs of impending illness, such as a bout of flu or a cold, the most obvious facial feature to look at is the side of the nose bridge.
The most obvious indication of impending illness is a pimple that appears either on one side of the bridge or on the bridge itself. The size of the pimple will give you an approximation idea of the severity of the illness. You can expect to fall ill within two weeks of it’s appearance.

Persistent gastrointestinal problems are present in those who have a mole on the center of the nose bridge.
