Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
This seems to be due to a bacterial infection. Mostly it should resolve spontaneously. However, if it does not, you can get a prescription for Mupirocin ointment, and apply 2-3 times daily. Also keep the area clean.
This will resolve the bump.
Hope this was helpful,
