Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. It's hard to say how this started out, but as of now you have a nasty infection in your leg and you need to see a medical provider for an exam and antibiotics. It may be a cyst that needs draining, but antibiotics (all of which are prescription) will be required.
