Raised bump between breasts, swollen, painful with puss. What is it? How to remove?

About 6 months ago I developed a raised bump in between my breast ...I just dealt with it but about a month ago they turned into two pimples that are swollen and painful to the touch and the puss is a clear liquid...I thought acne but the acne medicine burned top layer of skin off and made me bleed ...can u suggest anything at all.

You could be having boils.
To treat the same do warm water compresses twice in a day followed by application of topical antibiotic cream. If its very tender, you may take an antiinflammatory analgesic. Hopefully it should resolve in few days. If it persists or enlarges, a course of oral antibiotic may be required or some times incision and drainage might also be required.
Hope that answers your query.
