painful red swollen spot forming at tip of nose

Hi everyone, I've been going a few days now ( 5 or so) without makeup (no foundation or powder) this is a huge step for me as I have been wearing makeup for 3 years now trying to cover my acne but usually it just makes the bumps more noticeable and I think my skin was more irritated as a result. Anyway, I have a pimple forming at the tip of my nose, I can feel it and the spot looks red and when I touch it, it hurts. Any suggestions on how to get it gone before it forms a head? That would be gross cause then it will definitely leave a scar if it gets to the point that I can pop it....how can I get it gone?

I don't think you can eliminate something like that entirely, but you could apply an ice cube to reduce the swelling. It helped me, and believe I know exactly the kind of spot you are talking about.
