Customer Question

Hi, I discovered a small bump on the back of my scalp. I would like to attach a picture to show you, the bump is slightly tender and a little red from touching it. Should I be worried about it? I'm a 20 year old healthy female. I thought maybe it's a pimple since I do get some face acne, but I've never had a pimple on my scalp before.
