Red bump on top of the ear, pain on touching, swelling, headaches. Causes and treatment?

I have a small red bump on the top part of my ear by my head. It hurts to touch and is swollen. I can also feel some pain without touching it. And gives me a headache . Sometimes when I touch it, I feel like I m going to be sick. I don t have health insurance and cant afford to go to the doc. Is there any advice as to what you think it might be?

It seems that there might be having ingrown hair follicle infection or infection after some insect bite.
Go for one antibiotic medicine course for 3 days.
Do not try to touch or pinch to remove pus from the site, it might aggravate the condition.
Ok and take care.
