Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi,

It seems to be a furuncle which is bacterial infection of the hair follicle. I would recommend you to take a course of oral and topical antibiotic and anti inflammatory medicines.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, Dermatologist
