Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.

I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

Lump that is painful and warm to touch could be an abscess.

You may need a course of antibiotics if it is just inflammation and abscess has not fully developed yet.

If it is an abscess, it has to be drained.

I hope that answers your question.

I am away from home for a few days, can this be taken care of when I get home, or should I go to a "medi-call" clinic where I am now?
