Lump on shoulder and between breasts, hard pus like foul smelling discharge, no redness or swelling

I have an extremely large pore on my shoulder as well as one between my breasts and every so often I squeeze them and a hard white pus comes out. It s quite solid and smells terrible. The pores themselves don t hurt and are not red or inflamed, they are just big holes in my skin that have been there for several years. I have never really been effected by them other than having to squeeze the pus out once in a while and having to endure the odor . The skin around these holes are relatively flat, so I don t think it s a pimple or a boil or a cyst. What else could it be?

Thanks for using Health Care Magic
I would be pleased to answer your question .
The Large pore could be a sinus or a sebaceous cyst , or calcinosis cutis ( deposition of calcium) .
Inclusion cyst is another possibility or follicular cyst .
You will need to get the pore on your skin probed with the help of a Dermatome by the Dermatologist . They will examine the area and will cauterize it to remove it permanently .
Thanks and take care
