These abscesses can be troublesome to cure of I am afraid. The only way to get rid of them is to cut them open, allow the pus to drain out, and then leave the area alone to heal up. It is not uncommon for them to return though. Hopefully it has now finally healed up since the last procedure, but only time will tell. If there is no sign of it coming back after a few weeks, then there is no reason why you cannot go swimming in a few months’ time.
