This sounds: most like an infected sebaceous cyst; you can call it a pimple if you want. It is actually pretty common and results from dead skin cells and oils getting infected. You might try some OTC polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin) ointment for a day or two, but if it doesn't improve quickly see your doctor for prescription antibiotics, either topical or oral. Don't squeeze it/prick it! ...Read more

Folliculitis: Any time that you remove hair from you armpits (or really anywhere) you can irritate the hair follicles and get an infection in the follicle and this is called folliculitis. These small bumps usually resolve on their own. You can apply some warm compresses to speed up the process. It is best not to squeeze the bumps. ...Read more

I have a small bump on the back of my head, by my ear. It's not painful, nor does it move. Should I be concerned?

Doctor can examine: Bumps are hard to figure out without an exam. Sometimes, they appear and disappear for unknown reasons. Bumps may be ok if there is no pain, oozing, bleeding, itching, etc... Otherwise, the causes may be irritant or allergic (something touched the area), or may be from blocked pores, blocked glands, irritated follicles, etc... A doctor can look at the bumps to help get a diagnosis. ...Read more

May have infection: It is possible that popping the bump allowed the area to become infected. If the aching doesn't go away or if you have redness, warmth, or severe tenderness in the area, you should see a doctor to be evaluated for an infection. If the aching is mild and goes away within an hour or two of when the bump was popped, it is more likely just related to irritation from when she popped it. ...Read more
