Diagnosed with folliculitis on inner thigh. Found bump on back. What could it be?

Hi, my sister has had a bump on her back for months now. We put a boiled towel on it to bring it to a point. It really didnt come to a point but it did get a little bigger. My mom had popped it and brown liquid came out. Now she was just diagnosed with falliculitis on her inner thighs,could that be what it is but on her back. Just know the bumps on her legs have puss not brown liquid. Could you help me better understand what it is on her back. Please and Thank You!!
