Brief Answer:
Septic nose

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

You should remove the stick and apply an antibiotic ointment like Framycetin. My advise is you should get yourself examined by an ENT specialist or at least send me the picture of your nose so that I can suggest you better and prescribe you accordingly.
Keep the wound clean.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
