There is not much more you can do than heat. Also use a triple antibiotic cream. Topical tincture of iodine will help both the cyst and the infection.

this is a very tricky location. there is a lot of other possibilities in that area that could be similar to a hair root or cyst problem. it could be a lymph node,abnormal blood vessel. so do not try anything by yourself. see a doctor.
