So my nose is like really tender and sore and it is bright red and really swollen. It is in the tissue right below the cartilage in my nose where you'd get a septum piercing. It is really swollen and it hurts to yawn or smile because it pulls on it. Yesterday it was just a little sore and it progressively got worse. This morning I got up and it was a little pink and a little bit swollen and I went to school and when I looked in the mirror after school, it was bright red and looks like a bruise halfway to the other side of the tissue that separates the nostrils. It is constantly throbbing and there is something, a surface would or something at the epicenter of it that my mom says looks like a massive black head but I don't think so. It hurts really badly and I have a game tomorrow (I am in marching band, there is a football game) and I really don't want to go to school like this again, much less to the game. Please help? Asap?
