bump in skin after ingrown :(

I NEED advice please
I had to pick out this ingrown hair so I got it out with the end of a pin, but before this I tried my hardest to squeeze it out by pinching the skin together. (NOT A GOOD IDEA)
Now its been about two weeks and I still have this bump of skin where i tried to squeeze it out.
I tried polysporin, and i tried tea tree oil, nothing is making this bump go down, and its not full of puss....
Someone with any advice please respond. its in am embrassing spot.

Re: bump in skin after ingrown :(

Does it feel like something is in there? Or is it just turned into a hardened skin bump?
If it were me (of course I don't know what it looks like nor am I advising to do this, just that if it were me), I would put some sort of antiseptic germ killing stuff on it then pick it a little and try to see if I could get anything out. Could it be a pimple or something?
If you expect the unexpected do you get what you expected if what you get is unexpected?
