  • Ibuprophen. Put some Polysporin on it also.

  • You might want to put a hot compress on it and take some Tylenol.

  • This is why you call a doctor...I was going to suggest Ice - the complete opposite of elizabr. Until you can see your doctor check online at

  • Yeah, we really don't know what it happening exactly. I mentioned heat because if it was a pimple, of sorts, the heat should make more drainage possible.

  • My thought would be ice if it is swollen. Ibuprofen for the swelling and an antibiotic cream wouldn't hurt. You better call the dr. on Monday, it may be infected.

  • I would actually do a warm compress... it will help draw any infection up and out.
