Well spots up the nose are very painful and if it's really a boil it will be very very painful - you unsympathetic wife you grin

He could try holding something like a hot flannel against his nose to try to bring it to a head, if it is a spot (rather than a boil) he could shove some savlon or antiseptic cream up there. If it is a boil (rather than a spot) he might have to go to see the practice nurse and get some anti biotics.

I someone I know has had success with up the nose spot bursting by poking around with a cotton bud - disclaimer I am not a a medical professional, unless watching Holby counts.

Bit of TCP on a cotton bud?

Hot flannel and get some magnesium sulphate paste onto it.
