Thanks for posting your query.

From the picture it seems like a mole.

Another possibility is

Recurrent hair root infection
Cyst (a bag like structure beneath skin).

The best thing would be to visit a skin specialist. He will after examination, advice treatment.

If it is mole or cyst then you need to get it removed to get rid of it permanently.

In either case there is nothing to worry, please consult a skin specialist.

Wishing you good health.
