Hi, dear.
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
You may have some acute inflammation forming the abscess or may have tuberculosis and turn into abscess. You should go for incision and drainage of pus. Then go for culture and sensitivity of that drained pus. Then take a course of antibiotics accordingly.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer.
Thanks for using health care magic.
Wish you a very good health.
