big pimple with multiple heads?

7 posts in this topic

What could be the cause of this? It feels hard and I see like 3 small whiteheads in a big pimple. It's been there for a week and a half. What can I do?

i had one of these but the whiteheads are deep inside. I had no other choice but bring it to a dermatologist because icing/bp just won't do anything.

<3 the regimen

current status: clear but occassional huge zit. like every 3 months or so.

If it doesn't go away soon, you could try getting it extracted by a dermatologist or an esthetician who has experience treating acne. Is the spot inflamed or red?

Maybe it's a cyst under the skin with pimples on top of it on the outside of your skin? I've actually had that before. I do know that cold sores on my lip often start out as a big lump on my lips and then get very "pimple like" heads, too.
