Default My 1 year old has a very itchy small hard thing growing under her skin

It is a round shape and hard to touch - very itchy, it's not that big.

Any ideas appreciated before I go to the vet.

Thanks.

Can you post a picture? With your finger or something in it so we can compare size?

It's well hidden under her undercoat but it's about a quarter of the size of a pea, maybe smaller.

My dogs get ingrown hairs and cysts (pimples?).

But if you aren't sure what it is, the vet is always a good bet!
