Nasal obstruction: This needs to be looked at by an ENT doctor. You may have a pseudocyst, foreign body, tumor, or other form of partial obstruction to sinus drainage. That will, if present, cause sinusitis and headache. Go and get seen. Best wishes.

An infection: I suspect that this is from a bacterial infection (likely staph) which was likely introduced when you picked or blow your nose when you had the cold. See your doctor who may Rx you a topical antibiotic ointment for the lesion. Although your body may eventually fight it off, it may also spread if left untreated.

Does a lump in my nostril point to herpes?

Probably not: Nasal anatomy is very complex so whether the bump is abnormal is unclear. A raise swelling on the inner nostril near the hairs is the most common complaint and is usually a bacterial infection that can improve with neosporin or equal. Herpes simplex 1 a cold sore can occur in the nose but usually is below the nose is ulcerated and weepy and needs prescription meds if recurrent.

The inside of my nostril is swollen, it hurts to touch. What is this and what causes it? Feels like a huge lump inside.

Infection: The most likely cause is a pimple-like infection. Often occurs inside the nostril and usually affects a hair follicle. The infection is usually self-limited and will resolve without intervention. However, more significant infections may require antibiotics to eradicate. If you have any concern that the condition is worsening, seek medical advice from a local physician.

I have a lump in my nostrils 1 moment 1 side will be stuffed and have that lump and the other side will be fine then it randomly switches sides?

Turbinate cycling: It sounds like you are discussing a normal phenomenon in which the inferior turbinate's alternatively congest and decongest. You will perceive this problem, if your nose is a little more congested than average from allergies for example. A deviated septum can make this worse. See an ENT to examine this.
