In brief: See your Dr.
At that young of an age especially, infections can spread rapidly, so she should be seen by her pediatrician very soon.

In brief: M.D. visit
Sometimes a pustule on the skin is caused by staph bacteria.
I would advise checking her temperature, keeping the area clean and calling your pediatrician. I would suggest asking about staph and MRSA during the visit.
