    Suggest remedies for a pus filled cyst near the scrotum

Posted on Thu, 2 Jun 2016 in Lump
Question: My father has a cyst (which is what the doctors called it) and it won't heal and he is at a 5 for pain and liquid continues to drain and he has seen three different doctors and they all tell him that it will eventually drain and he is beginning to doubt this. It is right next to his scrotum, slightly below and the doctors always squeeze and drain but it is not healing. The liquid has strong to mild odour. What do you suggest?

Brief Answer:
It is probably an infected Sebaceous Cyst.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Health Care Magic and thanks for the question.
I can understand your concern.
Please do let me know if he has other diseases like Diabetes or Hypertension.
Also do let us know what surgeries have been done earlier.
It is quite possible that it would have been an infected cyst which has been drained surgically and the pus is draining now. Is he on any medications like antibiotics?
With all this information it would be possible to let you know what should be done.
Looking forward to getting your reply.
Take care.
