That’s why … And ask for a doctor’s referral, thank you
Thank you for the question.
A lump in the shoulder that expels white fluid from it may indicate a skin infection. Many types of infections can cause clinical manifestations like this, including folliculitis, acne vulgaris, abscesses, scabies, and so on. In addition to primary skin infections, bumps on the skin due to other factors such as insect bites, contact dermatitis, skin tags, to benign or malignant tumors can also be infected secondary, causing complaints as your father experienced.
Instead, the lump that secretes this fluid is not arbitrarily solved without consulting a doctor first. This action is very risky, in addition to triggering bleeding, secondary infections, and other tissue damage around the lump.
With regard to the condition that your father is experiencing right now, it is most likely that the lumps that have cracked are curved because the underlying tissue has not healed completely. Other factors, such as the presence of scar tissue, fistulae, and reasonable variations in the deposition of muscle and skin fat can also trigger his complaints.
If this condition is very disturbing, do not hesitate to consult your father directly to the doctor or dermatologist so that it is well identified possible causes of complaints. It could be, later the doctor will direct him to undergo further examinations, such as ultrasound or biopsy to make it clear what kind of treatment steps that need to be done. If it is judged that there are no more dangerous conditions, it may be that special handling will not be carried out other than observation.
In the meantime, help your father to keep his body clean properly. Avoid over-pressing the area of the former skin bump, especially with dirty hands.
Hope this helps ...
