In brief: Abscess?

It sounds like you have an abscess that may require drainage, and maybe an antibiotic if quite large, surrounding redness, or fever.
There are no reliable home remedies or over-the-counter treatmetns. See a doctor ASAP, and in the meantime do not squeeze or probe it or attempt any treatment yourself.
