Hello dear,welcome to health care magic forum.
I am dr aslam here to help you.
Your symptoms indicate a soft tissue infection. Most probably folliculitis. This can be treated with antibiotics like amoxicillin+cloxacillin/clavulonate along with analgesics for 5-7 days.sometimes it may also need a small incision and drainage to drain the pus if any.
Your doctor will guide you.
Hope your query is answered. Thank you.
