What could be the cause of bump on the center of the palm ?

My daughter (2 1/2 years old) has a bump on the center of her palm. It looks like a pimple and the head of it (a white center) has got bigger since she went to bed last night. It is very sore for her to hold something in her hand or if it is touched. Is there something else this could be besides a pimple? This is the only one she has on her entire body but it does not look like a blister?
