Pimple on the nose has grown. Does applying heat cook the germs and dry it up?

In brief: Um, no.
Heat may "bring it to a head" and allow it to drain, however. But please don't burn yourself, and please don't squeeze it! if it doesn't go away within a reasonable period, see your doctor, because there are other causes for bumps on the nose, and some need to be treated promptly.
