Lump on bottom of groin area. What is the green pus with blood?

Occasionally I get a large (quarter size) lump on the bottom of my groin area (more like on the butt cheek / thigh) Its starts out as a tender spot.. (bruised feeling) i notice it after my thong has been rubbing against it or if I have hard penetration (sex)... After 2 days a hard lump appears. NOT ALL the time...If I squeeze on it a head appears below the skin... If i squeeze it hard enough (which is very very very painful) it will pop and puss shoots out. The puss is usually greenish/yellow with blood . After squeezing it the mass goes down and I m relieved of pain.

Dear customer,

It seems that you are suffering from some localised infection of the soft tissue.The greenish-yellow pus discharge is likely to be due to infectious etiology which may be bacterial cause.You should have the pus culture/sensitivity done, blood counts and physical examination by doctor.The pus may need to be drained by incision and drainage and should be done immeditely without delay.

The oral or parenteral antibiotics coverage should also be given to cover gram postive and gram negative bacteria including anaerobes.

You may need to take the antibiotics course for a period of 5-7 days to control the infection completely.The pain can be controlled by analgesics like motrin , advil. etc

You should NOT delay now and start the timely treatment.

Thank you
