Either one: Either fungal infectioni or certain bacterial infections can do this. "Oozing fluid" suggests a fairly severe infection, so it may not be safe to attempt over-the-counter treatment, and it's possible you would benefit from an oral antibiotic prescription. See a doctor and take it from there. Good luck!
