Can a boil on the side of the nose be treated?
I can send a photo of it from my phone.Where can I send a picture from my phone?
I sent two pictures, the second is better.
In a bad place because it's hard to wear my glasses with this!
Not sure if there's anything I can do but wait for it to go away.
Please upload an image. Steps mentioned.

Today it's still red and raised. Maybe it's a boil.
It is a boil - due to bacterial infection - possibly due to Staphylococcus
Thanks for writing back. I have checked the attached image. It clearly points to a bacterial infection (boil). I would insist you to apply some topical antibacterial ointment like bacitracin, clindamycin, mupirocin or gentamicin for the next few days. Oral antibiotics like clarithromycin or cotrimoxazole can also be tried.
Mild hot compress can help.
Feel free to write back.
