I have pimples that when you pop them there is clear fluid that drains out I have had cancer 2  times someone said it has to do with WBC  should I be?

Sebum: Clear fluid from pimples is indicative of sebum, which is a naturally produced substance derived from sebaceous glands. I do not believe this condition has anything to do with white blood cells, but with your history, i would still encourage you to seek dermatologic care to not only get treatment, but peace of mind. ...Read more

I have a painful boil in my anus... I tired to pop it I felt it pop but nothing came out because of all the skin .... What should I do?

I have a painful boil in my anus... I tired to pop it I felt it pop but nothing came out because of all the skin .... What should I do?

Surgeon/dermatologis: You need a surgeon (a general surgeon or preferably a colorectal surgeon) or a dermatologist to I&D (incise and drain) the boil. Boils are actually abscesses, which means they are walled-off infections. The pus, or bacteria-filled fluid, inside of them must be drained out, and the skin must then heal from the inside out. Squeezing it will only push some pus further in, which will make it worse. ...Read more

So if a lift note cannot be popped because it's solid what was under my armpit that I pop and white came out.. cuz I haveanother that wont pop?

I presume you are: asking about a lymph node. A lump that pops with white/pus drainage is likely an infected cyst resulting from a hair follicle or oil gland within the follicle becoming inflamed or infected. Opening (not popping) an cyst should be done very carefully and, really, by a health professional. This professional could also determine whether the lump is an enlarged lymph node or lipoma or ? See your Doc! ...Read more

I believe I have a Bartholin's cyst. What should I do to help it go away? I have started warm compresses. It is about the size of a small grape.

Bartholin's cyst: If someone has a small cyst which causes no symptoms and is not infected , it may be best to simply leave it alone. However , we should not assume a lump in areas around vagina or vulva to be bartholin's cyst .It is best for a doctor to examine and confirm the diagnosis and rule out other causes of lumps in vulva. ...Read more

Needs to be checked : We can not say what exactly it is. It might be a small abscess or a cyst . I suggest you consult your doctor to find out what it is. You squeezed it and did it drain pus or blood or nothing .Get it checked from your doctor as you might need Anyibiotics and / or incision and drainage or if it is a cyst causing symptoms then it may need to be removed surgically ...Read more
