Dear Sir

Thanks for providing clinical photograph. It is likely to be infected cyst. Exact diagnosis will however depend on clinical examination .

I would suggest you the following

1. Oral antibiotics like Co-Amoxiclav for 5 days will be helpful

2. Anti-inflammatory like Ibuprofen taken orally will be helpful

If the lesion still persist then do consult your physician for further assessment
