What is this on my face??? Red, bumpy, peeling, prone to pimples

I have this red, irritated, bumpy, peeling with sometimes little pimples around one side of my nose.  It is always a bit red but I started using this organic skincare and all of a sudden, it has blown up. My mom calls it an "oil gland infection" but I really don't think that this is the proper term. I have used Elidel----which is worthless, polysporin and cortaid. Nothing seems to be helping. Every once in a while it will itch. it looks horrific! Please help!
