Head cold, cough, sore spot on nose, swollen bump under skin, swollen sinus. Infection?

I just recently had a head cold, i now have a cough that is producing mucus and sounds raspy and issues with my nose . I am no stranger to this because i suffer from allergies throughout the year. My concern is that while washing my face last night i noticed a sore spot on my nose and it hurt like it had gotten hit and was bruised. I looked at it and noticed it was actually a swollen bump under the skin above my nostril ,also the left side of my face where my sinus is, is also swollen a little . My question is could i have an infection now?

Hi, Thanks for query.
It seems that you might be having upper respiratory tract infection with Sinusitis.
The bump you see might be due to infection in the nostril due to irritation and congestion in the nostril.
Consult you doctor and go for antibiotic medicine under his guidance.
Ok and bye.
