I have a bug bite on my butt that i itched and its turning into an abscess. My mom told me that i needed to get everything out. Is that good or bad?

Yes you need to "get it out" but the more medically appropriate answer is to let your doctor see this area and determine if you indeed have an abcess or whether it is just a local reaction to the bite.
