Painful bump

I have had a bump at the top of my nose on the side near my eyebrow for about two weeks &  it is quite painful now, any feedback? Could it be a cyst?

Dear Kim
It sounds more like an infected skin gland to me - try using bactroban ointment but if it is very red, bigger than a pea or have a yellow point, you may need to let your GP have a look, it may be an abcess that needs draining
