Needs to be seen...: What you are describing may be a small abscess (boil), ingrown hair, or possibly something else. Without being able to see it it is impossible to diagnose. I would recommend seeing your local physician or arranging a virtual visit on healthtap where you can have a video call to show the spot (or upload a picture). Take care!
