White Pustule

Teenage girl. One white pustule on front of thigh, towards knee. The pustule is this big --> O <-- A little red around. It doesn't sting, itch, or hurt in any way. What is it?

Hi!
In all probability this is acne or even a blocked sweat gland. This usually goes away on its own. At times such white pumps are due to viral infection (but usually there are multiple fluid filled bumps). It can even be a cyst.  Please show this to your doctor as a confirmed diagnosis is not possible on net. Take care!
