This is probably due to a nosering made of silver - Silver should never be worn in the nose during healing, because it oxidises inside the wound, and can cause allergic reactions, lumps, and can leave a permanent black mark on your nose. Only use surgical steel.

For the mark, you'll have to apply Bio-Oil or a vitamin E cream. Time will however be needed.
