Hello and welcome to health care magic,

Since you have not mentioned when you got the nose pierced I would assume that it was recent. In any case it seems to be infected and for this you must take an antibiotic and also apply local anti biotic medication in consultation with your doctor.
Alternatively you can take a snap shot of the lesion and get back to me through our site.
