In brief: You have cellulitis.

It sound like you have an infection of the skin called cellulitis.
Most infections can be treated easily with a proper antibiotic. However, certain infections, like mrsa, a drug resistant infection may require you to see your doctor and have the drainage cultured. By culturing the drainage, your doctor can chose the right antibiotic to clear the infection.

In brief: Poss staph infection

"pimples" outside of "acne age" and outside of acne-prone areas can be folliculitis.
One cause of folliculitis is the staph bacteria. Topical antibiotic, antibacterial soap and even oral antibiotics are sometimes used.
