Doctor :   Thank you for writing to us. I think you have an infected boil or something similar to that. The boil is most likely infected by Streptococcus group of bacteria. This can be easily eradicated with some antibiotics. Also, you need a Doctor to clean and remove the pus from the boil. Talk to a Doctor to get both things done. I hope this helps you. All the best.
