thanks for writing.

Any protrusions suggest sinus formation.

A sinus is a track connecting outer and inner parts of body.Outer part is on skin,and inner opening can be deep extending in to muscle,bones etc.

Common cause of sinus are tuberculosis,and chronic osteomyleits.

A sinus has to be drained surgically and for this you need to consult a surgeon.After drainage you need to take antibiotic course for several months.

I hope this can solve your problem.Take care.
