Red lump on upper right groin

Starting on Thursday I noticed a red lump on my upper right groin...like, above the penis, below the stomach.  it's gotten slightly larger, and today had a little black spot on it as well. it almost looks and feels like a large zit. it's somewhat painful, but mostly from irriation I think rubbing against my leg and clothes.  any advice??

Since it came on quickly, this is probably an infected or inflamed follicle.  I suggest warm compresses and an antibiotic like bacitracin or neosporin, and no squeezing.  If it doesn't go down in a few days, or if it gets larger and more painful, you should see a doctor.  But many of these episodes are taken care of by the body itself, with a little help.
