soft, painless bump on nose

Question: I have a soft, red painless bump on my nose, a little bigger than this O. It doesn't hurt at all, and I can even squish it down a little. But it's red and raised, definitely noticeable. It did hurt at first, when it was forming, just like any other normal pimple. And I've had this before, and it ended up lasting a very, very long time, over a month at the very least...same symptoms too. I'm just curious as to what this is, and if it's preventable. Can I do something to get rid of it faster? What's wrong with me? I don't have acne, just an occasional pimple here and there. I have combination(more on the dry side)/sensitive Asian skin. Can you please help me? Thank you so much!
Answer:

Unfortunately concerns like this must be seen in person by a dermatologist so they can properly diagnose the issue. I recommend you make an appointment with a dermatologist in your local area. Best skin care wishes.
