Dear ash.ashwarya

The symotoms that you , have described are suggestive of folliculitis , the oil from the oil massage have blocked the hair follicles with intern have become infected

Foliculitis self resolving in one to two weeks ,
You can treat your symptoms conservatiely ,

1. hot water compress with a warm washcloth or a hot shower , will help the pustules to give head , discharge and relieve the pain .
2. i suggest a antibiotic like MUPIROCIN OINT thrice daily
3. avoid oil massages oily make up
4. visit a dermatologist to evaluate weather you need oral anibiotics
5. for the pain you should take a painkiller like IBUPROFEN
