Sore area, bloody yellow pus oozed out. Using peroxide and neosporin. What is it?

I have a sore that looked like an insect or spider bite , i ve been icing it and then using some hot compresses. Some thick yellow/blood pus has come out in the last 24 hours. I m cleaning with peroxide and neosporin , it s still sore and red. It s a hard round circle about the size of a dollar coin. Is this a skin/staph infection?
