I'd recommend just keeping an eye on it for oozing/changes in color/or increased pain. Don't hit that spot again for a while, give it time to heal. Happens to quite a few of us here and there - might just be a reaction to the BA.
If you're really concerned, visit a doctor - as troubleshooting infections online are kinda difficult. But I can tell you if you do a search on the symptoms you just listed you'll probably come up with hundreds of posts just like yours - and very few were ever infections (like what BigN said).
