Thanks for posting your query.
Since the pain subsided after the discharge of pus, it was likely to be due to a minor glandular infection. Most of the times, such minor infections do subside spontaneously after the pus is drained and systemic antibiotics are not necessary. Doing a hot fomentation takes away the induration if any.
You can self monitor the area for any persistent pain and discharge in which case consulting a physician for a physical examination is advisable.
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.
