    Hi there, Wounds like these might need a surgical incision. Don't try doing it yourself as it might injure you or get badly infected.

    Warm compress? I have one currently that was very swollen and after a warm compress it finally started draining on its own

    I found a salve at Walmart called Prid Drawing Salve. It has helped on stubborn abscesses that won't drain.
