Small red bump near nostril, feels like blister. Using kleenex, face cloths, bleeding. Treatment?

For the past few months I ve had a small red bump near my nostril . It looks and feels like a pimple or small blister but it doesn t seem to be going away. However sometimes using kleenex or face cloths will cause it to bleed . The first time this happened, it bled quite a bit for such a small bump. Any ideas what it could be?

Thanks for posting your query.

From the history you provided, it could be what we call pyogenic granuloma.

Its a benign vascular tumour.

The best treatment for it would be to get it excised from your dermatologist.

Take care
