In brief: Possible infection

it could be an infected hair follicle or an early access (pus pocket from bacterial infection).
apply moist heat for 10 minutes at a time as often as possible and take Motrin. If it worsens, gets more red or more painful, or larger you need to see a doctor quickly as you may need antibiotics, or a drainage of the access
