In brief: Impetigo

Sounds like impetigo you might need this drained and would need oral antibiotic better see a doctor.

In brief: Not impetigo

You will benefit from a trip to the DR and probably drainage of the inflamed cyst.
Sometimes an antibiotic is also useful, though usually not. An exam will help make this decision.
