Hello,

I understand your concern.

As per your description,possibly you have some sort of infection/abscess formation.

You should clean the site with hydrogen peroxide or betadine solution and then apply OTC Neosporin powder/ointment on affected site.

Also take OTC Advil.

You should see your doctor for a clinical exam and if required your doctor may prescribe oral antibiotics and do proper drainage and dressing under sterile condition.

Hope this helps.
