please I need help :/

Hi,

about 3 months ago I got a hamster from a friend. My friend said that his father was walking down the street and a old man just gave him the box with the hamster inside. SO me being a animal lover and having a hamster trail i took him in and named him goku. But when I took him out of the box i noticed a huge bump on the side and became worried. As days passed by the thing grew bigger and bigger and at the time i couldnt find a vet that knew anything about him. Well one day when I took him out of his cage I look and the bump was gone and a huge hole was on the side of him I cleaned it out with rubbing alcohol and clean his cage and as days went by it got better and smaller till it looked like a huge pore. But here is the problem just last night when i was changing his change I looked on his belly and saw some Yellow junk hanging and I thought it was pee on his fur. so I took him in the bathroom to clean it off but when i pushed up his fur a bit a saw two holes. One not so big and the other one pretty big with yellow junk and puss coming out I don't know what is wrong with goku! I cleaned out the holes like i did with his first one again and this morning it looked like it is healing but im starting to get really worried about him! Do you think its some skin disease?? PLEASE HELP

Wow, I have no clue what that could be! You don't have any exotic vets in your area?

I have never heard of that. I wanna say the first one was a tumor. Perhaps they are cancerous tumors? Otherwise, an infected hole with puss makes me think it's an abscess. The cats here have had them. They're nasty. And they usually have to take antibiotics for 'em.

It doesn't sound like a normal tumor. It sounds more like an absess. I had a cat with sort of the same thing. Keep us updated and keep him comfortable.

Just keep it clean as well as possible. Make sure you change his bedding as often as humanely possible so bacteria doesn't build.
