A 16-year-old female asked:

I have a small hard bump on my chin. it hurts a little and is slightly red. i don't think it's a mosquito bite because it doesn't itch and i don't think it's acne either. what is it and how can i get rid of it?

Likely acne nodule: Given your age and location of the chin, it is most likely a nodular acne lesion. You can see a local dermatologist for a treatment to get rid of it, if it is still there in a week.
