Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Though a good quality picture would have helped better, the description points towards a boil/ staph infection. Most likely would require antibiotics or I/D if there is pus walled off. Please consult your doctor to discuss the options above. You can take ibuprofen for the pain for now. An U/S and / or biopsy may also be indicated if nature of the lesion fails to establish on clinical examination.

wishing you best of health
