Brief Answer:
Either folliculitis or wart

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
I have reviewed the attached photograph though it is not very clear.
It could be either a folliculitis which is inflammation of the hair follicle or a wart.
I would recommend you to upload clearer pictures of the lesion so that I can guide you in a better way.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
