Hi. This sounds like an infected sebaceous cyst. Nothing too serious but unless it drains and lets the pus out it isn't likely to get better. You could try applying warm moist heat to it to allow it to drain but it would be better to see a doctor and have him decide whether he needs to drain it or to give you a course of antibiotics
