Thanks for the query.
Your symptom of painful swelling and cottage cheese discharge suggests a boil or furuncle which is infected.
bacteria cause skin boils
, also called furuncles
. Boils, which form in a hair follicle and the surrounding tissue, start as a red tender lump that enlarges and develops a white or yellow pus-filled center.
I suggest you to take antibiotics for 7 days.
You can generally treat small boils at home by applying warm compresses to relieve pain and promote natural drainage
There is nothing to worry.
Hope this helps.
