Sore, blister like bump behind ear, got pus on poking, had bumps on the same spot

I have a blister or cyst like bump behind my ear, it is sore and feels pressured like it is filled with fluid it is in the crease on the back of my ear where it joins my scalp I have foolishly thought it was a pimple and poked and squeezed it, some pus came out. There has been a bump there for a few months but it has recently gotten larger and very sore

Thanks for writing to us.
You have an infection behind your ear may be an infected lymph node. This needs proper treatment with antibiotics and the source of primary infection needs to be looked for. Please do consult an ENT specialist for proper treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

ENT Specialist Dr. Divya Upadhya's  Response

The blister you have described appears to be a folliculitis ie infection of the hair follicle. If there was some pus inside then it has to be removed completely by a trained Dr and you will be given appropriate antibiotics. Dont press the bump yourself it will only spread the infection further and make it worst.

I hope you found my response to be helpful and informative. If you have any additional concerns I would be happy to address them.
