Thanks for posting your query.
It seems that you have an infected gland around your areola. The XXXXXXX pus is suggestive of an infection inside. Now that the pus has been drained, the swelling should subside. You need systemic antibiotics to avoid any further spread of the infection.
Mild like ibuprofen will take care of the infection.
You can do a hot fomentation in the area for relief.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
