From time to time, I would develop an inch on the inside of (1) thigh next to my penis. Recently, it started to swell and I begame to squeeze it until a painful blister developed. Once I began squeezing the blister, blood along with puss would come out. However, the swelling began developing downward towards my buttocks. Today after squeezing the blister in the men's bathroom, I returned to my office. Then I detected a foul smell, went back to the restroom and my underware was saturated with puss and blood. Can you help me figure out what's wrong?
