I had a pus bump on my elbow that caused

Patient: I had a pus bump on my elbow that caused pain when I would lean on it and I popped it thinking nothing about it and it hurt but was fine for about a week and then I woke up and the side of my arm near my elbow began to swell up and it hurts when I touch it and it’s kinda feverish. I was wondering if this could be serious or not. I may have bumped it as well because I did go hiking a few days ago but i don’t remember bumping my elbow any. I have ice on it right now.
