Hii sms,
You are suffering from a hair root, bacterial disease called furuncle, it is characterized by red painfull small lesion to a big boil.
If possible squeez out all the matarial (or consult to a dermatologist)and than take topical and oral antibiotics. it will go take 10-12 days to heal.
hope this will help you
