Thanks for writing to us.
Your friend seems to have suffered from an acute infection like folliculitis or an abscess. A direct examination by physician is required to confirm the diagnosis.
Your friend may need broad spectrum oral antibiotics for treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
