Hole in armpit

I'm not really sure what this thing is. I have what looks like a big zit in my armpit area, but it never has any sort of pus or other disgusting thing in it. Upon closer inspection, I see it's actually a little hole...as if someone just gave me a poke with a pin. I have tried to pop it to see if anything happened, but instead, all that happens is the skin around it cracks and bleeds.

Last year, I had what I think was a sebaceous cyst in the exact same spot and I tried to lance it with a needle (sterilized). Didn't do anything but draw blood, but ever since then, that little hole never closed and for some reason, it turned into a little boil thing. It's been this way for months.

I'm not really worried or anything since it doesn't hurt or cause discomfort. I just don't even know what it is. It also seems to be a little stinky...it's not body odor, but that rank smell that tends to accompany large blemishes and boils full of pus. But nothing's there to remove or drain.

Anyone know what this might be?
