Hi Alta
Rather go to the doctor for drainage of the abscess, so that it can be done sterile. At home, there is the risk of bacteria entering the abscess when punctured and then the abscess will only become worse. The fact that the surrounding flesh is still inflamed is a reason for concern and you might need more antibiotics. Good luck.
