Probably Infected: It's easy to introduce bacteria into the area when you pop a pimple, and this sounds like it is a small skin infection setting up, especially the warmth. Try some neosporin creme on it tonight and see how it looks in the morning. You may need an oral antibiotic if it worsens overnight. Good luck! ...Read more

In August 2015 hit the back part of his head really hard and it is still hurting, to the point he wakes up in tears. He has white pimple things all?

It almost sounds like condition now, with "white pimple things", might be shingles. Return to Doc for further eval. ...Read more
