Boil on groin region

I'm not sure if it was a boil, but it was inflamed like one, and I did a stupid thing and popped it when the head showed. It had a very foul Odor as well. But I would wash it and the inflammation went down a lot , but, it's been months and the area is just faintly red. And where the boil was, sometimes if I touch it and squeeze it slightly, I can smell the odor again. An there is also a flap of skin, like a pocket of a sort, where it looks like skin grew over skin, I've never seen this before, and honestly it looks awful and I can't have this unsightly flap of skin down there. I don't know how to alleviate this problem, and I'm in dire need of answers, please help me.
