A:   Such localized, subcutaneous, painful nodules around the eyebrow, could be due to folliculitis (infection of the hair follicles) as a result of hair plucking. It may also occur due to insect bite or a viral infection. It is required that you see a Dermatologist for a proper clinical assessment of your condition and specific therapy, immediately.
