Thanks for the query,

you might be suffering from bacterial infection.

Dont worry just complete course of antibiotics.

You get relief with this.

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.

you can ask a direct question to me on this forum, following the below link.

Wishing you a good health.
Thank yo
