Default HELP!! red bump on face

My baby Stella has a red bump on her face right above her nose. It wasn't there last night, but it appeared when I woke her up this morning. it doesn't seem to hurt her but it had a bit of crustiness that I cleaned off. I'm very concerned because nothing like this has happened before. I put some neosporin on it and let her go back to sleep. any idea what it is?

It looks like it could be an abscess or ingrown hair. Neosporin shouldn't be used on their face it can cause eye problems. If it gets bigger, redder or doesn't go away in a day or two you'll need to take her to the vet.
