Thanks for the query,

you might be suffering from furuncle.

It is a deep bacterial infection.

Bikni line is prone to develop this type of infection due to moisture and impaction of hair.

Take a course of antibiotics.

Apply an antibacterial cream like mupirocine.

Hot fomentation is also good,

It helps in accumulation of pus, which can be drained later.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

Wishing you a good health.
Thank you
