Hi there!
Injury or blow to the pad of thumb is the commonest possibility based on the information shared by you. Is this bump filled with fluid? If yes then it is possible that it is a form of dermatitis called pompholyx or vesicular eczema .Moisture, detergents and chemicals can all aggravate it. It can also be related to stress. Another possibility is a pustule due to any bacterial infection. It is advised that you see a dermatologist and get the diagnosis confirmed. Treatment will depend on the cause. Do keep us updated.
Best of luck!
