I have a strange bump on my nose.
Blackhawksfann posted:
I got a bump on my nose by the upper narrow part on the side towards my eye. It is a bit red, tender to the touch, but isn't a pimple. Hasn't come to a head & nothing happens when I squeeze it. I have my daughters wedding in 6 days & don't know what to do. I've had this for about 2 weeks. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Blackhawksfann,
You should go to a dermatologist ASAP. It sounds like you have a ruptured cyst and the quickest way to get rid of it is a cortisone injection. Good luck with the wedding!
