Fluid-filled lump between skull and neck, pus discharge, open sore, severe pain. Cure?

I had a fluid filled lump right where my skull meets my neck . (where it flexes) I thought it may be a zit , but it oozed out clear puss and no blood . It didn t have an odor to it.. It is extremely painful. It has started to crust over, but when I brush my hair, the hair rips out. Washing my hair reopens the sore. I know it sounds gross and maybe Im over reacting, but I have so many other health issues, Im not sure if it is linked somehow.

It seems that you might be having infected hair follicle boil giving you this trouble.
Due to disturbed by combing, wound is not healing.
Go for regular dressing with antibiotic cream after proper cleaning.
If there is no improvement then it might be infected Sebaceous Cyst and consult your doctor and get examined.
Ok and take care.
