    Ouch. It could be a cyst or abcess. I get them n dr prescribes antibiotics to get rid the infection and they usually go down in swelling.

    Ouch! Sounds painful!! I'd go to GP and get something for it, just incase it becomes infected.x

    Sounds like a little sebaceous cyst to me rather than a boil. Is it at all painful? A boil will hurt like hell. However unless infected a cyst will be quite benign but you nay be able to squeeze a cottage cheese like substance out of it which smells well cheesy :puke: I've got a little one in my neck Ive had for years. Showed it the doctor who basically said they could cut it out if I wanted but it'd leave a scar. Get checked by a doctor just to make sure.

    Get it checked at the docs. They can remove it if it's causing you an issue. If it is a cyst under the skin they don't tend to go away by themselves.
