In brief: Heat pack

Moist heat pack and keeping wound clean and out of water can help speed the process along.
If it is not progressing over next few weeks should see someone.

In brief: Sweat gland infectio

You might have had sweat gland infection/abscess.
It usually heals if not need to rule out infection with resistant bugs like MRSA. Have it cultured and treated appropriately.
