Hello there...I can understand your concern. it would have been better if you had posted a photo of the lesion. if it is indeed a furuncle, then depending on the size the treatment will vary. in small cases oral and topical antibiotics might be sufficient. in case it's large, incising and drainage might be necessary. so kindly consult a Ent specialist for further evaluation.
