Red bump behind ear, filled with a liquid, acne, painful, can hear when imbalancing the pressure from side to side

I have this red bump directly behind my ear. It s red, and it has some sort of liquid inside or so I believe. When I went to the doctor, they said it was like acne , but it s been here for about a month.. I am extremely worried that this maybe serious. When i press on it, it hurts, and I can hear a little slushing when imbalancing the pressure from side to side.

You may be having an abscess behind the ear which is a collection of pus.It may need to be have to see an ENT doctor.Maybe you have taken antibiotics,so the pus sort of coagulated and thickened up,otherwise by this time it should have ruptured.
