See a doctor ASAP... nasal infections are in the "danger triangle" and can spread quickly.

In brief: See physician
Pain may be secondary to a superficial infection of the skin and tissue at the tip of the nose.
It may also be a manifestation of relapsing polychondritis, which can cause recurring pain in the nose ears or other cartilage structures.
