In brief: It

It sounds like you need oral antibiotics which would require you to see a doctor. In the meantime you can clean the area with hydrogen peroxide or iodine and apply anti-bacterial ointment like neosporin or Bacitracin to the affected area twice a day.
This may or may not help, if it does not see your doctor for appropriate treatment. Good luck.
