Bump on nose, what is it???

Hello everyone, I'm hoping someone can help me figure out what i have on my nose. On Dec. 29, 2015, i felt a small bump forming on my right side of my nose, i figured it was a pimple on its early stages, so I left it alone. It was painful for the first few days. I put some clearasil to see if it would go away....it didn't. Then after a week, i had no pain but a shiny red bump. I've put hot/warm compression for days to try to bring to a head, and no luck. Since then, I've put natural aloe vera, toothpaste, iced it, tea tree oil, baking soda paste, honey, honey with cinnamon paste and nothing has happened. The bump has not changed in size and is still red and shiny. I bought Mario Badescu Drying Lotion and it has not helped either. I also bought Renee Rouleau anti-cyst treatment and have been using it for 3 days now and nothing has happened. I hoping someone can help me figure out what i have. Is it a blind pimple? Cyst? I finally made an appointment with a dermatologist but my appointment is until Feb. 16th. Here are some links to photos of my bump.

I was able to see a dermatologist today. He told me it was a cyst and it was gonna take forever to go away. He recommended to get a cortisone shot since it looked huge. So i got one. I felt no pain just a bit of a sting afterwards. He also prescribed antibiotics.

Yesterday, i noticed a small white head beginning to form on my bump. This morning, the head looked the same so i concealed it with makeup and went on to see the dermatologist at 1pm. After walking out of the dr's office, i looked at the bump on my mirror and noticed the the white head was so much bigger and ready to pop. (My mistake for not checking on the white head prior to visiting the dr.)

Now my question is, should i pop it even though i just got a cortisone shot?
