Lump underneath armpit, smelling, whitish-brown pus, hair discharge. What is this?

I have a lump underneath my armpit. Today I notice this smell coming from it. So I squeezed it and this whitish brownish pus? came out of it along with a bunch and I do mean a bunch of hair. Long and short pieces of hair. I was literally pulling it out with my fingers. So gross. What is this? And how do I get rid of this?

There can be possibility of Follliculitis in your arm pits. Stay way from hot and humid conditions. The only precaution you must follow is not to touch, pinch pop or squeeze any of them other wise it can get infected and can cause complications. You can apply hydrocortisone cream and can take by mouth the antihistamine benadryl.
