Answer
There are a number of possibilities: 1) if the lesions were painful or tender the possibility exists that is a herpes infection, 2) if the lesions started with a red lesion and no pain then this could be the beginning of acne, 3) if the lesions were itchy then you are dealing with an irritant or allergic reaction to something that contacted the nose. The treatment depends on the diagnosis.
