    Unhappy Large red bump on nose help!!!

    Hello, I have gotten a large red bump on my nose about 4-5 days ago. the cause of it is unknown... it just appeared there randomly one day and it won't go away. I tried to run it under warm water and use a warm rag on it and that won't work.. i wash my face 2 times a day and thats not working either. I haven't touched it at all either and i refuse to because it hurts so bad!!! It keeps growing and getting bigger and redder each day. it does not have a head to it and it seems to be stuck under my skin. it won't rise at all. it resembles a boil but i never had a boil before nor has anything like this happened to me at all. my mom won't make an appointment for me and i'm scared it permanent. its ugly and big and noticeable and i wont leave my house until it is gone. please help... it is located on the front of my nose near the tip

    This sounds exactly like a cyst. A cyst is trapped oil and puss, under the skin, which WILL NOT COME TO A HEAD- so please dont force it to. They do hurt and they usually will go away eventually on their own, but there is an easy way to get rid of them, but it will take a dermatologist to inject it. They inject it with cortisone, and usually they will be gone in 12 hours..

    In the meantime, if you really cant get your mom to take you to a doctor- try dotting a tiny bit of over the counter 1% cortisone cream on it 3 times a day. Dont use it like acne medicine- ONLY on the cyst itself and only a small amount- its too drying for all over your face. See if it doesnt reduce the redness and possibly the size of it over a 24 hour period. If this doesnt work, youll need to see a doctor. You dont want to use cortisone on your face more than 24 hours....

    You can also continue to use compresses, but HOT not warm. It will sting, but if you press HOT into it for 30 seconds 3 or 4 times in 15 minutes- you may see this start to decrease on its own...heat, softens what is underneathe, allowing it to dissolve. You wont get anything out of this, so dont pick or try to squeeze- its under the skin. Youll wind up with one bad scar!

    Good luck.
