You should see your doctor-you may have a small skin abscess that may need to be lanced in order to get the infection out. You may need antibiotics depending on what it looks like after lancing it. Warm compresses may help until you can see your doctor. But, see your doctor ASAP for the proper diagnosis and treatment. Best of luck to you!
