Stop squeezing it.

It might be a pimple or ingrown hair, it might be a cyst. Whatever it is, squeezing actually keeps things like that from healing, because it can spread the bacteria further under the skin.

Just leave it be for now, do warm compresses at the most, and if it keeps getting bigger or becomes painful, see your doc.
