Question Zit turned purple

Hello all!

So I'm a 24 year old (25 in a week) that still gets pimples. I had one pop up right next to my earlobe on my cheek. It was a decent size pimple but nothing ever came of it. It never came to a head, it just sat there so I never messed with it. The redness went away but it's been atleast a couple months since it first popped up. I was putting my makeup on the other day and noticed that it has now turned purple! Needless to say I'm a little freaked out. It's still a bump, but somewhat "flatter" and it feels almost squishy... best word I can think of. It's somewhat painful if someone touches it (i'm scared to death to touch it) and it itches a little. What could this be??? Why was it a hard pimple for so long, now squishy and purple?? Any ideas?
