Thank you for posting your query.

You need to go on an antibiotic now so I will be very brief. This is exactly as you say -- an infected hair follicle. Go on Amoxicillin or whatever your doctor recommends! But do it now!.

Hope I have answered your query. Do write back if you have any doubts.

Wishing you speedy recovery.
