My husband was popping a zit on the tip of his nose and it started to turn red and that was like ten min ago and it still is? What do you think this could be?

In brief: This

This is tricky to answer without a picture.
It could be a benign mole, cyst, or acne lesion. Depending on your age, skin type, and risk factors it could be a skin cancer or other benign growth from sun damage. If it is still present and/or causing symptoms, i would recommend you consider seeing a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment options. I hope that helps.
