Hard lump on jawline near chin, redness

My daughter has a hard, small lump on her jawline- near her chin . It is very hard a little larger than a pea. I m not sure if it s a lymph mode because it s on the hard part I the jaw, not with soft tissue . It seems to be a tiny bit red on the skin but I m not sure if that s because I keep checking it. I just notice it a couple of hours ago

Thanks for the query,

She might be suffering from furuncle.

It is a deep bacterial infection.

Give her a course of antibiotics.

An X ray is also required,

Sometimes jaw tumors present in similar form.

X ray can be helpful in ruling out this.

Please meet a dentist for exact diagnosis.
