Taking antibiotics for infected cyst under armpit. Bleeding and pus after popping. What is this?

Hi, I am currently taking antibiotics for an infected cyst under my arm pit. They are waiting for the infection to clear before they will remove the cyst. Last night it popped a little bit and puss and blood came out, but now it has left 3 little hole looking things. Do you know what this is? and will it heal with the anti biotics?

You might be suffering from infected sebaceous cyst for which you were prescribed antibiotics.

If it has drained itself, infection might clear with antibiotics. But still you will have to get the remaining wall of cyst removed otherwise this might recur.

Hope this helps
