Thank you for your reply, this seems like an abscess, in most cases these are small and resolve and only need pain killers and application of antiseptic and pain killer creams over the pain area. If this has been there for 2 or more days and symptoms are getting worse along with fever then this means that you have to take oral antibiotics as this infection is severe and spreading. Getting an appointment from an ENT specialist is very good and save option if your symptoms are worsening. Let me know if i can provide more help. Thank you.
