I await your response Doc?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 1 year ago.
Thank you. Yes, its clearly visible now. The bump you are talking about is a blocked sebaceous gland of the nose. This happens when dust gets trapped in the pores. These can be taken out by getting a good facial treatment. These are like white heads only bigger and do not pop themselves. Nothing to be overtly concerned about.Please do not forget to leave a positive rating by clicking on stars on top right corner.Wish you good health.

I checked online it says it can't be removed but controlled it said Dermatologist will use a electric needle.

Is this necessary or will a good facial be enough?
