Hello there...I can understand your concern. If there's no pus discharge now, then you can apply mupirocin cream and take tablet tolpa d(anti inflammatory and analgesic). However if there's still pus discharge or pain doesn't subside in two days, then consult a general surgeon for further evaluation. You might need oral antibiotics.
