Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you and your symptoms warrant evaluation by a physician. You may try warm compresses, and over the counter pain medication like acetaminophen. Exercise will help with both physical and mental health.

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Don't squeeze it, as it may drive the abscess deeper into the tissues. Just allow it to "point" and rupture on its own. After it ruptures, use lots of soap and water. ...Read more
