User avatar Hello --

Tempting as it may be, it's never a good idea to squeeze a pimple or other inflamed, pus-filled lesion. This is why (what's happened to you). It's not likely to be serious and these usually will resolve on their own, but it does help a lot to keep the area scrupulously clean, using mild soap, warm water, and carefully patting dry, then applying a small amount of antibiotic ointment (such as Neosporin). This should clear the problem in a few days. If not, you'll need to have it checked by a doctor. Hopefully by now it's fine.

Just don't do that! :)

Good luck to you.
