Sicne yesterday its gotten bigged and red, its undermy skin and round, i'm very confused any sort of response would be greatly appreciated!

I apologize for not responding to your post sooner. I did not see it until now.
Your symptoms sound a bit like a skin infection possibly with an underlying abscess. I would advise you to have this evaluated. Especially if you are still having symptoms. These infections often need antibiotics to clear up.
