Hi...thanks for writing here.You have got saebaceous cyst which is now ruptured and become inflamed,so it is advisable you consult a surgeon or a dermatologist and go for excision of cyst.You can take oral antibiotics and analgesics along with hot fomentation for temporary relief ,but definitive treatment is surgical ,so consult your Doctor as early as possible.
