In brief: Abscess/boil

It sounds like an abscess or boil as described and certainly the definitive treatment is incision and drainage, with antibiotics.
At times, there may be a palpable cystic "core" to the abscess/boil and a more definitive removal may be required by a surgeon (preferably plastics on the face) to assure core eradication so the issues heals best and does not return. Best wishes.

In brief: Get 2nd opinion from

a dermatologist before you create a scar on your face.
This definitely needs more evaluation and treatment! Work with your PCP to get the referral. This is not normal.
