Treatment for hard bump near nose

I have good skin, but occasionally get a papule near the side of my nose.  If this is the nose:   >   It's on my right side/your left, bottom corner area.  A day before it appears, I can feel it coming.  It's red, hard, and painful to the touch.  I have had this issue for 20+ years (since adolescence).
I've used benzoyl peroxide (neutrogena on the spot) and AHA 10%.  It takes a long time to go away.

How should I treat it during the pre-, during, and post-pimple period.  What about makeup concealer?  Another issue is 2 tiny whiteheads that aren't responding to the b.p. (slight blackheads on sides of nose have)

Concealer is no problem.  Blackheads and whiteheads are best treated with pore strips or by getting facials.  For papules themselves, it's best to avoid squeezing.  Application of a topical gel containing benzoyl peroxide may help.

Best.
