Zit on the center of forehead, clear fluid on squeezing, has enlarged over the years. Remedy?

Had a small red bump that looked to be a zit on the center of my forehead . Tried to squeeze once and it hurt and a little clear fluid came out. I didn t touch it again after that and it started to get worse. And now two days later its the size of a silver dollar and looks like there s a eight in layer under my skin filled with fluid and it hurts to the touch and inches.

Welcome to healthcare magic
It could be a sebaceous cyst which got inflamed and infected due to squeezing. You would require a course of antibiotics and anti inflammatories. Consult your primary care physician and get these prescribed.
Once infection subsides you may consider surgical excision of the cyst at a later date.
Hope this helped
Take care
