Hello, and thanks for your medical question on E Health Forum.

From the history provided it seems that your brother might have had a infected abscess. This might need a incision and drainage procedure to remove the pus, in addition to antibiotic coverage.

You might benefit by seeking immediate medical attention for medical treatment and antibiotics.

I hope this helps.
