Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Painful pimple can be a hair follicle infection or a boil. Please do not prick it. Lean with antibacterial solution. Apply antibacterial cream and some heat with a warm cloth. Consult a doctor to rule out underlying breast abscess. Hope this helps. Take care!
