The part about the abcess has me concerned...if they are infected, he needs more than just expressing the glands. He should be on antibiotics. If they're just impacted and need to be manually expressed on a regular basis the vet or assistant can show you the proper way to do it.
So I'd recommend taking him in this time....clarifying whether there is truly an abcess, getting trained on expressing the glands and then going forward you can take care of it yourself.
