Pimple-like bump on my arm?
about 4 days ago i got this bump on my arm, near my elbow, that i thought was just a pimple. i have fairly sensitive skin so, pimples and skin irritations are well-known to me and usually disappear within 2-4 days with the proper treatment.
this bump that i have has not gone away yet. infact, it almost seems to be getting worse. it is quite hard and sometimes lets out pus when i put hydrogen peroxide on it. i've already tried polysporin, hydrogen peroxide and witchs hazel.. none of which have seemed to be working. i put some calamine lotion on it last night and the swelling had reduced about 40%, but its back up again today. it very well could just be a
here are a few pictures i have taken:

if you have any ideas as to what this could be or how to make it go away, i'd appreciate it very much. i will be going to the doctor tomorrow about it, i just thought i'd get some advice before hand.
thank you in advance.
