infected underarm cyst

My doctor just put me on Amoxcillian( penicilin) for infection of cyst. Got infected the last three days. Went from dime size to larger than quarter size across. also deep. Red and it hurts. Right side. Dr.gave me 20 pills. two a day. If cyst is still there he will operate to remove it. What else can I do to ease the discomfort of this? tried hot packs. Seemed to help temporarily. Did not shrink size at all. very hard. hurts if i just touch it with finger. Im worried. Thankyou. Andrew.
