Pinching pain in right nostril, pain radiating to right side of head. Due to infected hair follicle?

Doctor, I have a sharp pinching pain in my right nostril(on the skin opposite to the nose wall) if I press over there it pains like a wound and pain radiates to the right side of my head above the ear as if some pus filled pimple pain. intolerable consistent pain. I guess it is due to some infected hair follicle infection. three months back little pus was found. please advice me with some ointments and medicines.

Welcome to HCM,
You are right it seems that you are having some hair follicle infection causing this problem.
Take some anti inflammatory medicine like ibuprofen-paracetamol tablet.
To recover from repeated infection go for antibiotic medicine course.
Do not try to press upon and try to remove pus, it will aggravate the condition.
Apply some antibiotic cream inside the nostril.
Ok and bye.
