Doctor :   Hello, Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com I understand your concern. This seems to be due to a ba cterial 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, Regards
