In brief: Don't squeeze!

Pus and blood from a sore is probably an abscess.
Don't squeeze these as squeezing tends to drive the pus and infectious material under the skin and worsen the infection. See your doctor for the appropriate treatment.

I agree with above answer. Best to let the abscess be drained with sterile needle in a sterile environment. Squeezing it will possibly increase spread of the infectious source or leave more scar.

In brief: Products of inflamm

Hi diamond 91, the thick pus is exudate with rich cellular debris and proteins.
Commonly seen with blood, it can be something common like folliculitis or some other inflammatory process. Depends on your history or most recent hx. Things to monitor is for fever or if you feel worsening condition, go see your md.
