Thanks for the query.

You might have developed furuncle.

These are deep bacterial infections and hence you may not be able to pop them.

Treatment is with antibiotics.

You can apply a topical antibacterial cream like mupirocine.

Also do hot fomentation,

It will help in pointing of pus and will reduce pain.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
