    it could be just a blocked pore that you can't see... or it could be a cyst or anything. see your gp about it...

    Yeah I had one of those once, I think mine was frost bite but it went away on its own and I didn't see a doctor. But go see your GP if you think its serious.

    Have you been out in the cold lately?

    Could just be a spot, either leave it for a few days, or put some antiseptic cream on it and see what happens.

    If you've had tonsilitus it could be something to do with your glands. Definitely go to doc's if your worried. Especially if it's irritating in any way.

    Were you pierced with a gun (ie somewhere like Claire's, hairdressers rather than proper piercing studio)?

    That's strange then. There are things you can do to get rid of it, but they're mainly to do with stretching so it's probably best to leave it really.
