Advice Needed

Hello I am new to this board, so this is my first post. I was wondering if someone could help me decide if this pimple i have on my nose requires a trip to the dermatologist?

I have never been to a dermatologist before, but I have also never had a pimple this big. Its been on me for about a week give or take.

About a day ago i decided to get pro-active about it and have been holding hot compresses to it in the shower. It has pussed out a bit but I still feel its about the same size (maybe only a little smaller?). Now i have a little red dot scar on there. Greaaat.

I wouldn't normally mind about the occasional pimple but its right smack dead in the center of my face!

I just dont want to over-react and go to the doctor if its going to heal itself anyway.

In the mean time I have been using Neutrogena's 2 step skin treatment, its worked great on the rest of my skin. Except on big old nosey.

Someone told me it might look like a cyst? Any advice/comments?

Should I go to a dermatologist or just let it heal?
