Have bump on chest with pus discharge. Have clipped it and looks like flesh. Guidance?
Bump on chest . Stringy pus comes out when squeezed but always returns. Always seemed like there was more inside the pore that wasnt squeezing out (sesame seed-like) when squeezed it slips back into my skin over a few months its gotten bigger. yesterday i squeezed and tried getting it out with my nails with no success. took a nail clipper to it and trying to tug it out i cut a chunk off. to my surprise its solid like flesh!
It is possible that it is a cystic lesion. A cyst is a sac which collects fluid or another substance. Once the sac remains, it will recollect.
There are different types of cystic lesions that can occur in the skin, one of the most common is a sebaceous cyst.
You should avoid any more home treatments because of the risk of introducing infection.
It would be best for you to visit your doctor for assessment and further management.
Most likely removal of the cyst under sterile conditions, would be suggested.
I hope this helps
