Watch carefully: Hopefully this will heal and produce no further problems. Be on the alert, however, for redness, tenderness, warmth spreading beyond the area originally drained. If this happens seek medical input immediately.

Have it looked at: Personally i would have this checked, that firmness could be sign of a deeper infection or abscess.
