From your description, sounds as though you have have a Sebaceous cyst that has erupted. Apply a hot compress to the area will also help bring them to burst. Do not squeeze them, as this will cause further infection. However since you have another one occurring, I do suggest following up with your doctor, as you may also need an oral antibiotic as well. And of course as you know, soaking in the tub can help. Keep the area clean with antibacterial soap and even applying neosporin too.
