Brief Answer: Might be a suture granuloma. Detailed Answer: Hi. Thanks for the query. The sptoms that you mentioned point to a possibility of a suture granuloma. The other possibility is a boil that has ruptured. I suggest that you consult a surgeon. He will be able to assess the depth of the abscess and drain it accordingly.
