I would be pleased to answer your question .

It might be a recurrent furuncle . An infection of a group of closely places hair follicles. When it gets inflammed , the spot looks like a puffy red area . It could also be an epidermal cyst.
It would be important to see a doctor . The doctor might prescribe you certain antibiotics for the same . Do discuss the above with the examining doctor .

Thanks and take care

I feel the problem you encounter could be an epidermal cyst which is infected now.Let me start you on T.Droxyl500mg twice daily along with T.TolpaD and T.Zinetac twice daily before food for 5days along with topical T.Bact cream twice daily.After the infection has subsided you can get it removed by a dermatosurgeon in toto so that it does not recur.
