I started getting these in my 50s, I didn't have acne in my teens. Mine start as a small painful hard lump under the skin which comes to the surface quickly. The pimple and redness is finite, small, about 1/8". There is no head or pus inside, only a clear liquid that drains if I either lance with a needle or, if left alone, seems to leak out of several pores.  The bumps get red when they come to the surface, then look like a very small skin ulcer, then get a crusty scab and take at least a week to heal, but the pimple redness/hardness remains. I seem to get several in a row but I can go several months without having any. I only get them on the skin on my lower cheeks, down both sides of my mouth to just under my chin/jaw. (I don't mean touching my  lips like a cold sore. If I were a guy, this is the area where a fu man chou moustache would be.)  

I have researched these for a long time and can't find what they are online. I know they are NOT acne rosacea or seborrheic eczema or carbuncles or 'regular' (poppable) pimples with white matter inside.  They don't come from an unclean pillow case as someone stated above!

Here's what I associate mine with:  
- If I eat a lot of gluten, as I did the last week on a camping trip, that seems to cause a break-out. I'm not completely gluten-free, but have decreased it greatly over the past 2+ years. 
-When I don't drink 8+ glasses of water a day (blaming it on the camping trip again.)
-Although I'm in menopause, I still get monthly cramps like I did when ovulating. Almost always these pimples occur at the same time, making me think they're hormone-related.

I have these large painful bumps with serum in them on my scalp??? The 5th dermatologist thinks it could be hives. He wants to biopsy one when it is new. Kind of hard if they come during the night or he's busy. But I'll try. They cause hair loss but would be better if I kept my hands off them. Cuz after the serum comes a scab. Biopsy on a scab bed one just shows inflammation. Have tried most antibiotics and topical S, but still have 5 or 6????????
