Suggest treatment for hidradenitis suppurativa

I suffer from hidradenitis suppurativa, i ve recently developed a boil on my lower right leg, it has come to a head and is open, I am doing all the things such as cleaning and keeping it covered. Now the skin surrounding it is a dull red color. I am wondering if this means an infection?
