In brief: Yes

This is a common area where bug bites or hair follicles may become breeding grounds for staph or other germs that will form an abscess.
If you can sit on a heating pad for an extended period or over several hours you may get it to raise to the skin and drain.If not, it may need to be drained by your doc.
