I’ve attached two images is that helpful?
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
It has been there for a month or two but only in the last few days started to become uncomfortable to touch

Thanks for pics.

This is likely infected hair bump --pseudofolliculitis turning to folliculitis.

That is painful.

You can try topical antibiotic cream twice daily --Neosporin for example.

If no improvement in 3 days, this should be drained by your doctor.
