I have a bump on my back that hurts like a pimple but it's not. It's red, about the size of a dime and hurts to touch.?

In brief: Infected cyst
It is probably an infected cyst.
A hot compress 3 times a day can help bring it to a head. If it is soft and feels like there is fluid in it, you should see a dermatologist to have it opened.
