Hi Sam85,

It is impossible to diagnose this sort of thing over the internet. Having read through a few of your previous posts, however, I feel it is quite likely to be an abscess.
Yes they can leak but this is a good thing as it relieves the pressure.
Whilst it is true that you can get infection spreading to the brain, this is extremely rare so I would not let that worry ruin your christmas!

Best wishes

Lincoln
