Pain in cartilage on left nostril

I have a bizarre recurring pain in the cartilage on the left side of my nose. It comes and goes seemingly at random and seems to be occurring inside the nose itself and right around the tip. The other day I noticed that that side of my nose was red. I cannot lay on it or touch it without mild to severe pain. Should I see a doctor about this?

Absolutely. This could be a sign of infection. Infections in this area can become quite serious in some cases, so it would be in your best interest to get this checked-out.
