An abscess: Sounds like you are describing an abscess... an infection caused by a bacteria that causes a collection of pus under the skin - often painful, red, inflamed. See your local physician to confirm diagnosis and obtain the appropriate antibiotic for treatment. The physician may incise the area and drain it for faster and more effective treatment.
