Thank you very much for the photo provided.
I would strongly recommend you to start antibiotics as that would help in reducing the size of this indurated painful swelling. You would need an antibiotic that has a higher coverage which you would get as a prescription from your doctor.
Do continue with the Hot shower compresses , sitting in a tub with warm water ( Sitz Bath ) , Taking Ibuprofen as before.
You would definitely need the antibiotic and do take adequate rest.
