What could be a dark pink hard spot beneath the belly s skin?

My husband has something beneath the skin of his belly which comes to a head every several days and has a hard, dark pink spot about the size of a 50 cent piece associated with it. Would a poultice using Epsom Salts draw out the infection? He has an appt with the dermatologist on Friday, but today is only Monday. He s had this for several weeks.
