Probable infection: I wold use some warm packs 15 minutes every hour and observe. If continues to be tender, or if there is heat or redness or pus, or fever or chills or a rash, then i would get seen urgently and get diagnosed and treated. I would refrain from any picking, sticking needles or such into the area or pressing on this area. Keep hands away from face. See pcp if concern.
