If you have missed and now have a lump under the skin, this can lead to various and sometimes very serious health risks. See your chemist and ask for some Magnesium Sulphate ointment. Apply that directly to the lump avoiding surrounding areas if possible, then cover with a cotton bandage completely. Leave overnight then check. Might have to reapply for a second night. This acts as a poltice bringing the pus to the surface and eventually breaking open to ooze. Important to keep clean and covered during this time. Once it's drained, place a bandaid over it each day til it's healed. If you don't attend to it early enough, it will infect, swell, go red and hurt like bloody hell!! This is dangerous.
A hospital visit is then imperative where they will dose you up with IV antibiotics then cut it open leaving a huge gaping hole with a bit of gauze stuffed in to keep it open while it drains!!! My first suggestion is the easiest and most pain free solution. Good luck. And get a diagram of the body's main veins/arteries etc and learn where and which one's are the best to use for IV drug use.
Any query with medication, google it and it will tell you what it is predominantly used for.
