Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
From the description of your symptoms, it appears that you may be having a cystic swelling, such as a sebaceous cyst or an infected pimple. The on and off infections may be causing it to ooze fluid sometimes and solidify at other times.
I would suggest the following remedial measures:
- Firstly, never pinch or sqeeze the swelling, as it can result in superimposed infection
- Secondly, gently wash the area with soap or a mild anti-septic solution
- You can apply a topical antiseptic cream over the swelling
- Keep the area dry and free of sweat as far as possible
In case these simple remedial measures don't work or you develop any other complications, then you have to get it examined by a doctor for further management.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar
