Spots on neck and ears, not painful, burst with foul smelling pus, no relief with antibacterial wash. Suggestion?

Hi there i have a question about some spot/ lumps on my neck and around my ears. i have had them sometime now probably 6 months plus, they are not painful and sometimes they bust and a very fool smelling puss comes out of them, there is a few in particular that empty and withing a few hours to a day have refiled with the puss. A few spots/lumps have clear foul smelling puss, where another has a white quite thick puss which has no smell at all, i was daily with anti-bacterial wash but they still remain have you any idea what is causing them? thanks for your time.

After reading your query I suggest you to take a proper course of antibiotic containing either ciproflaxacin or Amoxycillin or any good antibiotic under medical guidance. Take additional pain killer to reduce the swelling. Do not scratch or pinch any affected area.
