Have swollen, painful bump under eyebrow. Fluid oozed out. Am I okay?

I have a swollen, painful bump under my eyebrow next to the bridge of my nose . I tried to squeeze it, not sure if it was a pimple or bug bite . Only saw clear very little clear fluid come out. And pulled out some hairs thinking it was an ingrown hair . It is red and really hurts. What can I do to make the swelling and pain stop?

hi there. Might i suggest your description suggests an infected mucinous or sebaceous cyst. This needs to be visualised by your local dermatologist. Alternatively an antibiotic & an anti-inflammatory agent like ibuprofen molecule taken from your local chemist may help relieve symptoms in 24-48 hrs. Cheers & do hope it gets better soon.
