Sebaceous cyst: This may be a leftover sebaceous cyst. Do you recall a very foul odor coming from the boil last time? A sebaceous cyst has a thin shell and a very smelly cottage cheesy filling? They get infected and rupture, but if the shell is not completely removed the cyst can recur and it leaves a little pit in the skin
