You can get herpes sores in your nose. I've only ever known one person who did, and she also got them on her mouth at the same time. The only way to know is to get them swabbed, which you've done.
Herpes infects nerve groups, and oral herpes infects the trigeminal nerve, which affects most of the face, meaning you can get outbreaks on your mouth, nose and rarely, your eyes. If you do have it in your nose, it isn't any different than getting them on your mouth - same virus, hsv1, you just get your outbreaks in a bit of a different location. Don't freak out - about half the adult population has hsv1.
If the fudicin seems to be helping, that would seem to be bacterial, like staph or something, and not viral.
The only thing you can do is wait for your test results. If you've had the sores for more than 24-48 hours, and they've started to dry up, the results may not be accurate. You'll need to test again the next time it appears.
Let us know what your results say.
