Infection spreading: The pimple or small boil having ruptured has allowed the ingress of skin bacteria into the area and the fact that pain is increasing suggests that local infection is spreading. U may try a local antibiotic like neosporin ointment 3 times a day or if the pain, redness &/or swelling increases have ur self examined by ur physician for an oral antibiotic if required.
