Swelling on the nose,causing discomfort and insect allergy

I have slight swelling on the outside of my nose , only on the right side. There is slight swelling inside the nostril as well. The swollen portion spreads from the bridge of my nose at eye level and continues down to the bottom of my right nostril. The part that is most swollen is painful to the touch but the surrounding skin is just puffy. I wear glasses and they are always resting on top of the swollen area, but cause no discomfort unless I bump my glasses into my face by way of adjusting etc. To my knowledge I am not allergic to any foods, but I am allergic to mosquitos. I was thinking it could possibly be a developing pimple . Is it simply a bug bite or could it be something more serious?
