The lump is normal. Just put some peroxide on a cotton ball and clean it a few times a day. It will go down in several days. Insects seem to be more resistant to the things we put on them to deter fleas and ticks so just make sure you check daily. When you bathe the dog you can also, as a final rinse, use apple cidar vinegar 1 cup to 1 gal. of water. It helps. You need to treat the area outside. I have successfully used some granules, don't remember the name, but from Home Depot, that are for fleas and ticks and you spread just before it rains (could water yourself of course) and don't let the dog in that area until it is dry.
