Ok, so I had this sore that kind of looked like a giant pimple, but it was on my right boob (weird, right? and no, I'm not over weight or sweaty there).
I looked at it more closely in the mirror and found something that looked like the head to a pimple. I noticed a hair in it too, so I took tweezers and pulled it out. Some dry looking puss came out with the hair, and now it's just a flat, non painful red spot. rainbow

I rinsed it with some peroxide and put a band-aid on it.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Yes,this seems an ingrown hair. If pus is still coming out then use topical mupirocin.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
