I guess I have a boil on the upper right side of my lip. My lip hurts like hell and is swollen. It is getting bigger and bigger. I went to the doctor and they are testing it for MRSA or Herpes Simplex.

I am on an ointment that gets applied to the nasal area. And an antibiotic for a bacterial infection.

My question is: Should I be messing with it and trying to drain it myself? And how would I get the pain and swelling to get less?

Any suggestions would help!!!!
