Hi Lee,

Thanks for posting your query.

It seems like a folliculitis of the hair follicle. It has burst spontaneously, which is good. It is better to take a course of antibiotic like amoxicillin for complete healing of the wound.

Once the healing is complete, your hair will regrow in the region.

I wish you quick recovery.
