Your description sounds that he may have had either a boil or sebaceus cyst. I do NOT ADVISE YOU TO TRY AND TREAT YOURSELF AT HOME

He should see his doctor for evaluation and treatment ...

If boil then it may need to be drained and treat with course of antibiotic

If sebaceous cyst then excision of capsule best to prevent recurrence ...
