Patient

Q: I tried injecting subutex for the first time about a week ago. I missed the vein and of course it swelled up. well i thought it go away after a couple days instead it got worse an worse. Now it is infected and hurts to even open my arm. when i went to bed lastnight it had a tiny white head on it and when i woke up this morning the whole thing was a big yellow/greenish pus pocket. i popped it with a needle i cleaned and drained all that out but its still very red and swollen. i popped it about 15-20 mins ago and it has filled back up with pus again. i am so scared to go to the drs because i dont want them to cut me open.. please help me please!!
