Sudden appearance of painful pussy pimples for first time in 40's. How to find relief?

Hello I am an Indian 40 yr old woman who has always had problem free, clear facial skin. Never had a pimple in my life. Now I have two pimples which are large, one on each cheek. One of them is so painful that I can barely touch the area and it is making the action of eating and smiling painful too. It could have pus in it since I am in so much pain. I live in America. What can I do to relieve this pain?
