Big, red, painless bump on face? Pimple or pimple under the skin?

Hi guys, this is my first and possibly only post on these forums. I just came here really to see if someone could tell me what they think this bump on my face is. One more thing, I do get pimples quite often. Here are the links to the pictures: Oh, and its to the side of my nose, below my eye.

Some things about it:
does not hurt, never has
have had for 3 weeks (taking a guess, thinking it started in the summer)
has gotten smaller since I've stopped poking at it
I've been told by people that its just a pimple under the skin
sometimes squishy, sometimes hard but 90% of the time is squishy.

someone please tell me what it is because I'm 13 years old and I get very worked up over little things

Sounds like a cyst, you can ice it when it flares, don't squeeze it, leave it alone. If it really bothers you, you can have your mom take you to the derms and have it injected (will be gone within 24 HRS)
