Pimple on dogs head

Hi. Last week what appeared to be a pimple appeared on the top of my dogs head. It seemed to be becoming a whitehead just like a pimple would. Yesterday it popped just like a pimple would with white pus coming out. I put some bacitracin on it and now today it's basically back to the size it was when it first developed. Does anybody have any experience with anything like this?

Just looks like a little cyst! Generally no big deal, just monitor it. If it gets noticeably bigger you may want to consider seeing a vet about it, otherwise it should be fine

I don't know if you've gone to the vet yet but my pup had a few of those, one on the back of her neck and a couple on her stomach. Vet said it was a bacterial infection and she went on antibiotics for 14 days. After a few days on the antibiotics it went away. The safest bet is to go see your vet.
