General & Family Physician 's  Response

This seems to be a cyst of some kind or a lipoma that has recently got infected. If you can provide a picture that would help in better understanding the condition.

If this is a infected cyst, it would need to be excised. If she also has fever, she may need antibiotics and antipyretics.

Without seeing it directly, its difficult to comment.
