Raised reddish rash on the lower leg. Infected ingrown hair?

I am 46 female and I have a sore on the front of my lower leg that is raised with a red ring around it and it hurts as well. It also has like a scab in the middle. I pulled a hair out of it because I thought it could be an infected in grown hair. The hair was stuck in there but it didnt seem to help any. Im just worried cause it doesn t look any better. Any ideas?
