Hello I'm Dr Chip
Could you please post a photo for me on this page?
No it's not molluscum
You've got an open boil there and it's very likely staph
If you don't get antibiotics for this it will likely only get worse and you may become septic
So I strongly suggest you see your doctor about this
Please let me know if you need any more information
If I were your doctor I would treat this with either Septra DS or Levaquin
That's the same as Septra--just a different brand name
I wouldn't suggest you do that until it's completely healed and not draining anymore
