Aging parent living at home:do I know for sure if it's just a pimple, or something more serious like a bed sore?

In brief: No

Take a picture, watch it over time.
If a pimple use neosporin and massage area. If it is worsening over a few days (increasing redness, soreness, pain) then have your parent seen.
