Does anyone have any idea what could've cause this and how I can treat it? It looks really painful for her. I went outside this morning and noticed it but it seems to have gotten worse. Here's a picture of what her nose looks like, it very dark red and irritated

How quickly did this develop?
Could it be rooting under a feeder or fence?
Is it actually cut or just more of a rash?
Have you had string sun recently?

Perhaps worth a try to rub on some emu oil, lavender, aloe, or heck even some cortisone.

The way the hair pattern looks I think she has been rooting somewhere and that has caused this.
I would be very closely to see if I could find where she rooted that could create this sort of damage.
Fence or a rough surface could be the culprit.

Aloe gel will sooth and help it heal as well as help prevent any infection possibilities.
