This is a Furuncle which is an inflammation of the hair follicles in the beard area.
This can be treated as follows:
You can apply over the counter neosporin ointment on the area three times a day for 15 days.
You can take otc Tylenol once at night to reduce the inflammation for 10 days.
You may need an oral antibiotic course for 5 days to eliminate the bacteria within and remove the swelling.
Do let me know if you have any further queries.
I am still awaiting a response from you .
