I would go to the doctor if it's painful. They will likely either give you a cream or antibiotics. If it looks like there is puss in it or is white in the center with a red ring around it, it's probably an infection or infected bite. Just don't squeeze it or try to pop it or anything. Every time you touch it or squeeze it it allows bacteria to get inside of it which could make it worse.

  • Go to the doctor. Sounds like syphillis. Look at some pics on the internet of all stds and compare. But u still need to c a doctor. Even if it goes away. Also could be herpes. Only a doctor will know since it could also be a simple infection
