Pimple on the inside of thigh near groin, swollen and red after popping. Solution ?

My boyfriend had a pimple on the inside of his thigh near the groin so he popped it on friday. Yesterday the area was swollen and red and it hurt to put pressure on it when he walked. Now today its even more swollen, the area around the pimple itself is very swollen to about the size of a golf ball and its still very red. He has no insurance and has to work tomorrow so what can we do to help take care of this?

Hello
Thanks for posting your query.
I will be glad to be of assistance.

From your description he seems to have developed an abscess. An abscess needs urgent treatment.
I would recommend a course of oral antibiotics. However a prescription will be needed for the same.
Also he needs to take a pain killer like paracetamol since he gets pain on walking. An abscess may sometimes have to be drained as well.

Please let me know if you have any queries.
