Thank you for the information.

From your history it seems that you have developed an infection over the area.

The swelling with its fluid content & throbbing pain may be due to an abscess also.

You need to consult doctor ASAP.

You will probably need antibiotic to take orally.

Instead of paracetamol you may take ibuprofen after meal which will help to reduce inflammation & thus swelling.
