I just had a molar extracted on the lower right

Patient : I just had a molar extracted on the lower right side (6 tooth back from the front) 5 days ago. Healing as gone very well, except this morning there is a small red bump thats semi painful in the extraction site but very close to the next tooth. Is this normal? I have been taking all antibiotics as told - rinsing and not eating anything I shouldn't. What is this?
Symptoms:  Small red bump in extraction site. Painful if disturbed.
