Thanks for your query
I understand your concern.
I suggest you not yo pick any pimple especially near nose as this is dangerous area of face.
Give simple its natural time to heal.
Wash your face regularly and avoid any cosmetic application.
In case it persist get examined by dermatologist as topical medication will be required.
Hope this helps.
God bless..
