Thanks for your query at HCM I suggest that you need to get examined by a doctor as you might have developed an abscess. Which might need drainage and send for gram stain & culture sensitivity for bacterial and fungal infection. Depending upon sensitivity result start appropriate treatment. You will have to start antibiotics and analgesics. Take care!
