Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

It is possible that you had an infected hair follicle (folliculitis) that may have extended to form an abscess which is a collection of pus that requires surgical drainage.
It may be best, if possible, for you to visit your doctor for an assessment and treatment.

I hope this helps
