I have had this weird bump on my face towards the side of my cheek for as long as I can remember. I don't even remember this developing on my face that is how long it has been. For years It's just sat there on my face, healed up, just a round spot raised above my skin that was definitely harder than the rest of the skin on my face. Just this one little spot.
It's always kind of drove me crazy. Any who, a week or so ago I started messing around with that spot on my face. I have no idea why, but i just decided to tear at it with y finger nails. I guess I'm prone to ingrown hairs and I had just gotten over a practically bad in grown hair earlier this month. So I thought, 'maybe this spot on my face from over the years was an in-grown hair from a very long time and i should just poke at it and maybe dig something out and within a few weeks it'll no longer be there.'
The picking and squeezing lasted less than a minute, for real. I gave up. Yes, this spot did get sore and very red. But didn't swell up or get painful. It wasn't a big deal. It was just healing.
For some reason last night at the bus stop, the spot on my face starting getting to me and I was sitting there and squeezed it a bit. To my surprise puss started coming up. it was thin and worm-like. This was weird, it didn't feel painful or anything and showed no sign of puss in the last week. I thought it was weird so I squeezed a little harder. Within moments the largest thing to ever come out of me appeared on my finger
I pinched it to wipe it away from my face and that is when I noticed that it was solid. A big, solid mass had just worked itself up from underneath several layers of skin. Oh, I was mortified and fascinated all at the same time! It was a perfectly formed solid piece of what looked like a bug! I really pinched it the second time and it smeared open. It was a very thick, almost like chilled, cooked beef fat. I moved it around in between my finger tips to investigate. At first, I thought it was bug which terrified me! with a lot of hair particles in it. Thick beard hairs much like the ones on my face. the thick hairs is what caused me to believe it was a bugs legs i was looking at?
Now the spot on my face is no longer raised above the skin. But it is practically a whole in my face. The skin on my face feels in that area feels normal. There is no spot that is raised above the skin,. And I expect it to heal up just fine, with hopefully hardly any scarring. I am a bit worried about that. But oh well, at least it's not raised anymore.
It seems as if the spot on my face that had been there for as long as I can remember was raised up above the skin because there was a built up mass of some sort filled with some unusual kind of solid literally just lived there. It was so far down in my skin and had been there for so long that normal squeezing on it wouldn't do anything. But out of nowhere, messing with at the bus stop, it just came out. no blood, no liquid puss. just this piece of stuff.
I am happy it's going to heal up and the spot that annoyed me so very much for so very long is no longer going to be there. But I am mortified at what came out of my face. I could not sleep at all for some reason thinking about where else on my body could this exist.
I guess I posted this because I want to hear someone's opinion. Because this situation is very hard to put into words to research through Google.
Before and now... April 18 - July 6.
The acne has gone now just a few red marks left. Luckily they kinda blend into my freckles. I am so happy this is finally working. My how unhappy I was a few months ago.
25 years of battling this disease ~ I just want to feel normal...
I'm 48, I did not have acne as a teenager, but have been plagued with it for about 25 years now. It literally has robbed me of any self confidence and has ruined my life. I know that sounds dramatic, but it's how I feel. I've been to several dermatologists, a naturopathic doctor, tried what feels like every plan/treatment available, made dietary changes/eliminations, yet NOTHING seems to work, and many things seems to make it worse...
i was currently loving the regimen until all of a sudden i woke up with an allergic reaction on my eyes. its honestly so sad for me because just when things were going good, something bad had to happen. So i dont know if i should discontinue the regimen or even know what else to do?!!!
I've been suffering from mild acne for around 4 years, my back and chest are the worst areas. I am 21 years old and I eat clean, drink 3L+ water and exercise daily, I've been self conscious about my skin for many years. I know my acne is not extreme but the pictures to smooth it out a lot.
I was wondering if anyone could tell me or shed light on what type of skin acne i have, in my opinion i don't think i have acne and they're just spots.
I only ever break out in 2 places on my face, my chin and the left side of my head. Until recently where in the last 2 weeks i've had bad skin on the right side. My skin on my back, chest, arms and shoulders is bad, and now my stomach is starting to get spots. Even if the spots on my chin aren't whiteheads ill always have red marking there (see images).
Please see pictures attached and tell me what you think.
I have just ordered the regime so hopefully i will have clear skin in a few month.
Hi, I'm new to this site but had a random breakout and need help diagnosing the type of acne. I started steaming my face with added sea salt and have been putting honey on my face. Any tips would be appreciated.
This is how my skin ended up after terrible cystic acne consumed my cheek area. I'm wearing light makeup, so u can see how noticeable it is, but you cannot really notice the hyperpigmentation that I also have.
