Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
The skin lesion that you are concerned about on left side of your nose might be acne lesion( inflammatory papule or nodule) or it might be a boil. The other possibilities include facial granuloma and herpes zoster (ophthalmicus).
It is not possible to make a diagnosis online so you must see your dermatologist for definitive diagnosis and management.
Hope this helps. Take care.
