Use natural sea salt soaks. Put a pinch of natural sea salt into a shotglass full of water. While standing, puch the shot glass against your belly to create suction. Then you can lay on your back with it or just stand for about 5 minutes. Also, I would go to your doctor to get antibiotics. They will speed up the treatment and the doctor can also verify that its infected.
