overnight raised area? not pimple?

What and why do I get these large hard and red cyst like growths sometimes when I wake up? They do not hurt to the teach but resemble an inflamed pimple that should take a few days to develop, not over night. They usually go away when I apply lotion. They only appear on the dry areas on my cheeks. Any ideas on what this could be? sometimes they do turn into a pimple but other times they just soften up and flatten out. What are some reasons for skin to act this way... even though I moisturized the previous night. and i dont think its hives either since its just one spot. looks identical to a pimple but its too red and inflamed to have appeared just over night.

If its super dry skin, why would it harden and raise?
