I have an achy bump on the back of my head, right under the base of my skull; fells kinda like an ingrown hair. What do you think?

In brief: Possible

It is possibly an ingrown hair or other small pimple, but it could also be eczema, or even psoriasis.
There are many possibilities. If it persists for longer than a few weeks, you might want to have it looked at.

In brief: Look at it

Or get someone to look at it.
It could be acne or a sebaceous cyst, even a lipoma can be in that area.
