Hi again,

Thanks for the information.

Based on the description provided I suspect the lesion to be folliculitis. such lesions are very common on the hair growing skin specially with thick subcutaneous fat.

You may need to take a course of antibiotics and one Tab Motrin 400 twice daily after food for three days to reduce the inflammation, swelling and pain.

For antibiotics you may have to consult your treating doctor as you will be needing a written prescription for the same.

Hope I answered all your questions. Please use any answer clarification before closing and rating this answer. I will be happy to explain or expand on any issue you may have.
