Painful pore on jawline putting out liquid when squeezed. Curable ?

I ve had a pore for some time now on my jawline near my neck that about once a month would become noticeably firmer. I d squeeze it and smelly white puss would come out. recently i squeezed it a couple of times in one day and it became infected (i think) and became slightly painful and puts out liquid instead of solid pus. What was it before, and how should I treat it now?

thanks for using healthcare magic.
i will be glad to be of assistance.

from your description, i have come to a possible diagnosis of a sebaceous cyst that you have.

this is a cyst which can secrete sebum , thats what you have experienced in terms of white smelly material coming out.

it is now probably infected, it will now need a course of an oral antibiotic called tab. erythtromycin for 7 days.

also once the infection subsides, it will be important to get it removed out surgically. thats the modality of treatment for its cure.

hope my recommendations were useful to you. please let me know your queries.
