Bump under skin with black spot, foul smelling white discharge, blister like rashes. Cure?

I had a bump under my skin that had been there for several had a very small black speck on it but it was very sore under the skin...finally bothered me enough that I scraped the top very lightly & squeezed it & a foul smell discharged with a long string of white like stringy discharge. Now a day later it is so swollen and has a cluster of blister looking rash around it?

hi there, what you have described soounds like a sebaceous cyst which has got infected giving rise to the foul smelling discharge and the small furuncle around it. You should consult a surgeon and if required get it excised and a course of antibiotics will take care of the rash around the cyst. If not then just a course of antibiotics may be a good start. In future do not squeeze such swellings but get it surgically drained as they may lead to cellulitis in extreme cases and may leave a scar on healing which might be quite unsightly if on the exposed part of the skin, take caare.
