It is difficult to provide you with advice without seeing photos or examining you. I would recommend avoiding pressing on the area if it is becoming irritated. An exam with a board certified specialist would be the next best step from here. They will be able to examine your nose in person and provide you with advice. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.
