sounds like an early cyst or papule.
Whatever you do, don't pick at it or try to squeeze it. That will only make it bigger and more red!
Do the Regimen as usual, but if you want to after washing, run an ice cube very gently over that spot, then apply the bp as usual and moisturizer. Otherwise, just don't mess with it. At night, do your Regimen as usual, only leave a nice glob of bp directly on it overnight, that sometimes helps keep them down.

well, it might be an ingrown hair.
It's hard to tell just from someone's description on the internet, lol.
Just don't mess with it. Put some bp on it, and let it dry up.

if it is really the size of a quarter, that sounds like the beginning of a cyst! that's huge!
If you have a derm, then he/she can inject it for you and that will make it go down quicker.
Otherwise, just treat it with bp, and leave it alone. Those things will get awful if you mess with them and try to pick/pop/squeeze them!
