Bump with green-yellow pus, drained and applied alcohol. Help

I had a bump size of an eraser filled with greenish ,yellowish puss. I drained it, (I thought) taking out the core. Cleaned it with anti bacterial soap and alcohol, putting a bandage on it. Later in the day the outer part by the bump is red swollen around the hole. If I measuared it I would say about 2 inches. Please help.........Thank you
