I think it is a small furuncle or just a pimple. It will be very helpful if you can upload a snap of lesion. It is quite difficult to diagnose on such a little information. You have a feature to upload the images by yourself at the right side of this query page. Please utilize it.

Also, please mention if there is pain, redness, or any history of diabetes.

Waiting for follow up.
