- Hi, i have an infection on my belly next to the belly button. It started out as an? inflamation at a spot of about half a centimetre in radius, which was tender to touch. Also the area around the spot(about 3 cm in radius) became real hard campared to the rest of the belly, like there was a lump or some sort of physical obstruction under my belly fat. i thought it was a cyst or some pus filled infection(i get them on my stomach sometimes but they are just like small pimples) so i tried to pop it after a couple of days when the center area swelled. But the centre are then became white and swelled even more, just about today the area has has swelled even more, to like a 1cm radius bubble and is red, like there is blood or some dark fluid under it. it is real soft and i am resisting the urge to pop it. Also the area around the swelling ( 3cm radius is still very hard). The spot is very tender to touch and i feel a lot of discomfort. It has been 5 days. Should i wait for it to drain/subside, or should i get it checked? is there anything i can do to ease the pain
