Sounds like : You started with a tiny, benign bump and it is now getting infected. Getting sore, red and tender . You can take Motrin or aleve (naproxen) for pain and inflammation. Apply warm compresses for comfort. If the area is more inflamed , swollen , redder and hot to touch, you will need to see your physician for treatment. You may have developed an abscess or cellulitis that need to be treated with antibiotics.
