HELP!!!! Golf ball on my jaw :(

What do I do?

Go to an emergency room or find a walk-in derm??

I created an infection on my jawline last night and now have a golf ball on the side of my face.

Basically I get horribly clogged hairs in my beard. Sometimes these hairs can be pulled out with the hardened sebum around the hair very easily.

Sometimes not though. The hair breaks in half and root gets stuck under the skin. This wasn't exactly like that but along the same lines..either way, cut a golf ball in half and stick it under my skin on my jaw and thats what I look like right now.

Thanks for the replies.

I started poking around at it on Sunday night and it inflammed pretty badly on Monday AM. It throbbed off and on during Monday. Bad enough that I had to call out of work for today and tomorrow so I will still try to see a doc.

Should I continue to take my accutane or should I go off of it incase they need to put me on antibiotics?
