Red, swollen and painful tip of nose

This started on Tuesday... The very tip of my nose has been getting progressively more swollen and red. The skin is hot, like an inflammation, and tender to the touch and painful if i press on it. It definitely doesn't feel like acne. I thought the tenderness and swelling was from a slight hit I had to the face, but I'm surprised at it now that it's been going on for so long... I wasn't hit very hard and barely noticed it when it happened. So now I'm worried it could be some sort of contact cellulitis.... I'm really very worried, actually.

Plus, my boyfriend calls me Rudolph. Help!
