hi. Thanks for posting at HealthcareMagic. Seems to be bacterial infection, Furuncle i.e boils. If i were your treating doctor i would have put you on oral antibiotics for a week(One from the penicillin/cephalosporin group). You can get a prescription from your local practitioner. Topical mupirocin ointment twice daily for 5-7 days. OTC pain killer like ibuprofen would help you overcome pain take care

Brief Answer: Oral and topical Antibiotic Detailed Answer: Hi. They must have burst open. Still need to take a course of oral antibiotic to resolve the infection. Massaging might push the infection deeper. Instead you can apply dry heated towel for pain relief, if the pain is bothering. OTC antiinflammatory like ibuprofen 400mg once OR twice daily. I would strongly advice a week of oral antibiotics (Penicillin group e.g Amoxycillin). Get a prescription from your local practitioner. Apply Mupirocin 2% ointment twice daily. Its available OTC take care regards
