Hi ,
Welcome to HCM.
Thanks for writing in.
the condition you are describing can furuncle or folliculitis.
It is better to get it drained by your GP or dermatologist.
Till the time you can take tab Ibuprofen twice daily and apply mupirocin ointment twice daily.
Hope this helps.
Wishing you good health.
