Brief Answer:
Topical antiseptic agents...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I was able to view the picture attached. It seems like an localised infection - ingrown hair follicle or impetigo. These is little amount of pus pointing. I'd suggest to apply topical antiseptic agents like bactroban / neosporin ointmnent on the affected area. If it hurts a lot, visit a doctor.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.

Regards
