Lump on the nose, tender, bruised. What should I do?

A small lump has developed on the outside of my upper nose between the bridge of my nose and eye. At first there was no lump, just tenderness, as if i d hit it or it was bruised; but now there is a small lump (smaller than a pea) ; it hurts when i touch it, as does a small area around the lump. What are your thoughts and what should I do?

Ophthalmologist 's  Response

Since you have a tender swelling, it could be a furuncle ( boil) or even acute dacryocystitis( acute infection of the lacrimal sac). A short course of oral antibiotics would help to curb the infection. You can consult your GP or ophthalmologist for the needful.
