If you are on warfarin, check your INR. It is usually recommended to have an INR of 2.0 to 3.0 for basic "blood-thinning" needs. A higher INR can cause hemorrhages. The hemorrhages can sometimes get infected and form an abscess. This is more so if you have developed a fever. Please check with your doctor for an evaluation.
