General Surgeon 's  Response
It looks like sebaceous cyst.
This cyst develops at hairy sites.
As the cyst got infected,it is hot and fever has started.
Because of fever,you are feeling dizzy.
Please consult a surgeon and get it excised.
Till then,you can take antibiotic and anti inflammatory drug.
wish you speedy recovery

General & Family Physician Dr. Ramesh M.Vachharajani's  Response
It seems that this might be due to some poisonous bite as it developed sudden without any history of hitting or blunt injury.
Take antihistamine like Cetrizine, Levocetrizine or Benadryl for 1-2 days.
Ok and take care.
