Hi Karen, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
It seems to be a Folliculitis Infection. It is Infected. You can apply any of the antiseptic creams over it after consulting a Dermatologist. Do not scratch it and apply heat pads over it several times a day. Clean it warm water and keep the area dry and clean.

Good Luck.
