Welcome to healthcare magic
What you could be having might be an infected sebaceous cyst. The sack like thing is the wall of the cyst. Usually the contents of the cyst are very foul smelling. You will need a course of antibiotics to bring own the infection. Get these prescribed by your doctor. Once infection subsides consider getting the cyst excised by surgeon or dermatologist.
Hope this helped
Take care
