Thanks for posting your query.
The small lump that has formed on your forehead seems to be due to a fibrosis at the site of injection. It can also be due to small subcutaneous swelling like a sebaceous cyst or lipoma. Such lumps usually resolve spontaneously over months without any treatment. In case the lump is painful or red or is increasing in size then an infection at the site is likely. In such a case, a direct examination will help n proper diagnosis and systemic antibiotics are needed to control the infection.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
