Go see ur family doc: Warm compresses are reasonable to apply to suspected infections such as abscesses (pus pockets). Ice is best for injuries. Abscesses don't usually bleed but rather can cause pain & may drain pus. Best to go see your family doc for complete evaluation. You may need an I&D (incision & drainage) to allow pus to come out. Sometimes antibiotics are offered. If this recurs, consider marsupialization.
