Brief Answer:
likely to be due to folliculitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi
welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

Dear Ms

The lesion is likely to be folliculitis which is infection of hair follicle. Exact assessment of severity is possible after clinical examination. Providing clinical photographs will be helpful.
In the meantime I would suggest you the following

1. Local application of antibiotic ointment

2. Oral antibiotics like Augmentin

3. Anti inflammatory drug like Ibuprofen will be helpful

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance will be glad to assist you

Take care

Best Regards
Dr Deepak Kaltari
