Abscess on breast

Like title says, I have an abscess on my breast. I have had them before usually under my arm or unner thigh. With past abscess' I would usually keep the area clean and covered with gauze and neosporin. I have been doing the same with this one but it doesnt show any sign of going away. In fact it seems to be getting worse. It is roughly golfball sized and extremely painfull. I know i need to see a doctor but given where it is it is embarassing to say the least. Im not sure if i should see my gyn, urgent care or ER. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: Abscess on breast

Please do not stop yourself from seeking medical help because of embarrassment! Any doctor should be able to treat your abscess, and I promise you, it will be far from the most unusual thing the doctor has ever seen.

Golf ball size is nothing to mess around with, please get it treated right away!
