Suggest remedy for pus oozing bump in antecubital region

In my antecubital region I have a firm and tender ball/bump under the skin that when squeezed like a zit, oozes out puss colored liquid. It SEEMS that the more I squeeze it the more the ball/bump pokes out of the skin. I had one last year that went away and just stays there but doesn t hurt BUT that one didn t hurt or bump out the skin as much of this one and didn t ooze out anything. Any ideas?

Hello,

* As per my surgical experience, the pus oozing bump in the antecubital fossa indicates inflammation in the sebaceous cyst gland most likely.

* The sebaceous cyst is a benign condition, where due to blockage of the draining duct, there is accumulation of sebum material inside the cyst wall.

* It is the process of secondary bacterial infection, which provokes pain pause discharge and other sequences.

KIndly consult your doc for a procedure of incision and drainage of the bump after clinical confirmation of the same.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel
