Hi. Welcome to HealthcareMagic. Seems like there is a focus of infection with pus collection. Please do not try to pop it and clean it with a disinfectant regularly till you see a doctor. You would be needing antibiotics and pain killers too. You have to keep it very clean. See a doctor asap before a large abcess forms. Take care
