Bump: If it is red and it has developed in a few days I would think this most likely an infection or could be a cyst. The bridge of your nose is where your cartilage meets your nose. The cartilage can get overgrown. This usually will be associated with some type of trauma. Souonds like you should have a physician look at this.
