Welcome to HCM,
From your history it seems that you are having Sebaceous cyst.
Once it breaks open you feel alright but again there is collection of secretion in the sac causing again lump.
It requires excision of cyst with removal of complete sac which will give permanent cure form cyst.
Meanwhile you get specialist appointment you may go for antibiotic medicine if there is pain or swelling.
Ok and bye.
