I'm a guy and I dont mess with my nose at all, I wash my face with soap at night. The only thing i put on my face is lotion in the morning. I get a pimple or zit every once in a while somewhere on my face, but on my nose is the most consistent spot. The first one that came out on my nose lasted nearly a month, it was really red the whole time. Then another one broke out but luckily it wasn't as visible, but it hurt a lot whenever i touched my nose. Then a red one popped out again and its still there right now... and now just below the red spot there's another not-so-visible one that hurts when i touch it.
