Sebaceous cyst, popped, tender, pus discharge. Taking antibiotics, previously removed. Cure?

Hi my seb cyst has just burst and is feeling very tender, I have tried to get as much of the muck out as possible. This is a reoccurring cyst as I had it removed 1 year ago and about 1 month ago it reappeared even bigger than before! I am and have been on antibiotics for the past 5 days to get the infection down. What advise do you have for me. Many thanks
