Warm compress: You may have an ingrown hair or "folliculitis'. It may help to warm a wet cloth and press it against the area to improve blood flow and assist your body in fighting an infection. Sometimes, an ingrown hair will go away on its own, other times, antibiotics are needed. See a doctor if the lesion doesnt go way or increases in size.
