Deep pore on arm, white-yellow pus discharge. What is this?

I have this deep pore on my arm and it s filled with a thick, oily white-yellow pus . It s getting really big and now it seems like there is something hard underneath it. That hard thing is making my sling turn white and itchy on the outside. What is this? How did I get it and how do I get rid of it. Should I see a doctor?

thanks for the query. the swelling you are describing is probably a sebaceous cyst. this is basically a benign cyst arising from the the sebaceous/ oil glands. if it is bothering you, you can get it surgically removed by a dermatosurgeon.
hope i answered your query. thankyou.
