General Surgeon 's  Response
Thanks for your query.
The cyst must have been there as a small sebaceous cyst. The resultant infection would have caused it to grown suddenly and became painful, red and hot.

I would advise you the following:
*Visit the Surgeon to know the stage of the disease, whether cellulitis or an abscess
* Get a prescription for an antibiotic
* Tell the Surgeon about H. Pylori problem
*Incision and drainage id advised so.

Take care, Visit only the Surgeon not the family Physician.
