Infection: It needs to be seen by your doctor again. It sounds like it is infected. If the prescription you were given was antibiotics and you took them as prescribed the infection may be resistent or it may need to be drained. You might need a different antibiotic as well. Get in to see your doctor as soon as possible if it is not improving. Good luck!
