blister on baby's face

HI,
My son developed a small blister under his eye about 6 weeks ago.  At first it just appeared like a blocked pore, so we left it to sort itself out.  About a week ago it changed, blood vessels had become apparent on the surface and it went from translucent to pink.  This morning it has seemingly filled with blood as it has gone very dark red.  The doctor has referred him to the hospital but this will take several weeks.  It is now about 5mm diameter and growing.
CAn anyone suggest what it is and what will be done about it?
