I had a squishy bump above my ear close to


Q: I had a squishy bump above my ear close to the side of my face the first time I noticed it I thought it was a mosquito bite or something it went away eventually it appeared again I thought it could possibly be a pimple that was under the skin it was very tender I tried to squeeze it over and over again and nothing so I got a sterile needle and poked it a few times to pierce it in the hopes that I could bust it as it was a little painful when bummed by putting on my eyeglasses ,showering, etc..I again squeezed it and a disgusting thick green tinted pus came out followed by a lite flow of blood. I have Googled alot of possibilities but none of the pictures match and none in the same area! Please help!!
