Brief Answer:
Furuncle

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query and photograph.
You have developed furuncle.
It's a bacterial infection and needs treatment with antibiotics.
Oral as well as topical antibiotics are required.
A combination of oral capsule amoxicillin 500 mg thrice a day for 5 days and ointment mupirocine to be applied locally thrice a day gives good response. You might need to meet a doctor to get these prescribed.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
