Hi

You seem to have developed a sebaceous cyst.
It does have a tendency to get infected time and again and present with swelling and pain .
There is a need for oral antibiotics every time the lesion gets infected.
You can seek a surgeons advise and plan for its complete removal if it is really bothering .
