Brief Answer:
Possibility of inflammed sebaceous cyst.

Detailed Answer:
Hi. Thank you.

This seems like an inflammed sebaceous cyst. I suggest you to take an oral antibiotic e.g clavum 625mg, thrice daily for 5 days.
Topically you may use an antibiotic cream e.g Fucidin cream or T-bact cream, twice daily.
