Folliculitis: Most probably you are dealing with hair follicle infection. It may get better on its own as it is draining already. You can use hibiclens topical antiseptic liquid to clean the site, if gets worse may need oral antibiotic. See your doctor.

Infectious: Painful oozing sores could be caused by several issues, most often infectious, such as infected sebaceous cysts/scalp cysts/abscesses/boils/folliculitis/carbuncles, etc, etc. See the Dr. for an official diagnosis, so the best treatment can occur. Good luck.
