Skin bump / papule : When it's invisible, doctors can't diagnose. If painful, it is probably a tiny infection, either viral or bacterial. A routine pimple would be bacterial , so you could dab a tiny spot of antibiotic ointment on it; bactroban (mupirocin) or polysporin would be better than neosporin , which can cause an allergy. If not itchy, it's probably not an allergy. It will change in time. Wait and see. Then go see a doc.
