I get these too sometimes. It may be a cyst or just one of those annoying "hard, under-the-skin pimples". These things are so far burried in the subdermal layers, that there is no head. Warm compresses are good, and do not try to pop it if you do not see it coming to a head! Wash it with any acne facial soap - my favorite it Terapseptic, because it contains Triclosan. Another good one is Panoxyl. With warm compresses and making sure the area is clean, in a few days a head should appear and treat it like any regular pimple.

If it still maintains a bump, and a bump only for 5 days, go see a doctor. It may in fact be a cyst and need to be drained.. which isn't as bad as it sounds!
