Insane pimple INSIDE nose

Recommended Posts

Hi  - first time posting, I hope I'm adding this to the right place.

3 days ago a huge pimple sprouted up inside my nose. Super painful, swelled up my entire nose on the left side, to the point where its even painful to lightly tap on the side of my nose.

Went to the medi clinic for my flu shot and decided to ask the the nurse practitioner what to do while I was there. She advised that it was in fact a pimple and rolled the edge of her Q-tip over to expel the pustule since by then it had sprouted a head. Pain was crazy and continued on throughout the day and into the evening (I was literally woken up in the middle of the night by the pain!). Today it's double the size, extremely painful and yellow. Normally I'd lance this thing again if it was on my face but I don't know what to do, what's smart/safe to do inside my nose... Advil helps with the pain but I can literally feel it wearing off after a few hours. Ouch! :'( Any tips?
