Greetings, I'm Dr. Peck, hopefully I might be of some help.

Is this a new lump that just recently appeared? Or has this lump been there for a long time and it has now ruptured?

Are you sure the contents that ruptured is pus? Often times clients come in with "abscesses that ruptured" that end up being cysts (not pus filled).

Write me back when you are able and I will reply as soon as I can, thanks! - Dr. Peck.
