Have a lump on my labia. Used Nystatin neomycin gramicidin. Lump is sore, peas sized. Pus comes when pressed. Medicament?

Hi
I noticed a lump on my labia few days ago i used a topical cream of a combination of nystatin neomycin gramicidin. The lump is pea sized and very sore. Yesterday i started taking oral doxycycline and today i tried to squeeze it and a little pus came out. The size of the lump is still pea sized. I heard that for such lumps a combination of oral antibiotics should be prescribed. so Should i combine doxycycline with cefixime. would this help????I
