Usually with abscesses, you need to let it come to a head before trying to drain it. I would leave it alone and keep an eye on it. You will be able to tell when it will be ready to burst. Please get a picture, that would help.

Warm compresses help bring them to a head. Do you havepics any idea what caused it? I have one that had a splinter and the whole side of his neck was huge.. I did warm compresses, penicillin and aspirin for 5 days. It busted on the third.day and is healing nicely.
