How can I get some relief??

I have had this red/painful “spot” on my nose for a few days now. It’s in an awkward area, adjacent to my nostril & near the base of my nose.

Currently the area is red and sore, no distinct spot/head just yet so I can’t pop anything! It has made that side of my nose look swollen/wide. It even hurts when I move my faceconfused

How can I get rid?

I’d ring the drs tomorrow, it sounds properly infected and needs dealing with.

I really rate the origins spot cream

My GP would laugh if I called them over this😂

It is a bit inflamed but it’s within the scope of a normal spot, I don’t think it’s properly infected. It’s just in a fiddly area, so it’s the location that’s making it swell etc

Thanks for the suggestions!

Those pimple patches you can buy are really good. I think corsyx do one but there are loads of options xx
