I had been to at least 10 dermatologist with the same problem with bump with fluid. It came over night while at a outing, I was at a motel and it started after that. I don't know how it started, I just don't remember having them before. I think that I have the medicine that is really helping me. I am not saying they have gone away totally, but this medicine has really turned it around. First do not touch them or they will move around, it seems that the fluid causes more. Sometimes they heal on top, but they stay under the skin and if you irritate them they will pop up. I had one under the skin for a year. The medicine I take is spironolactone 50mg twice a day. Then the cream to use every day is tretinoin cream .025. If you barely touch them they will swell so don't even scratch your face or it will swell. The doctor does not know what it is either. I have had biopsies and scraping and they still do not know. I even tried fungus meds and meds for scabies and neither touched it. I hope this helps. Do not squeeze blackheads either.

Hello Fellow Bumps with Clear Fluid sufferers:

 

I have the same problem. They appeared overnight one day and covered my whole face and yikes -- changed me overnight from happy and outgoing to pretty much a recluse. Just -- awful. Weirder still, I have been to literally thirty or so dermatologists over an eight year period -- four biopsies -- and no diagnosis. I don't understand this. I have been to the heads of reputable hospitals, the best derms -- no diagnosis.

 

I'll cut to the chase. After several years of this some things have helped somewhat -- it's not gone but it's not as horribly disfiguring as it was:

 

NEEM powder. This is an ayurvedic cure for inflammation. It comes in a powder. Make a mask with water or calendula gel. Leave it until it dries. Wash off. Helps.

 

FOR ME -- I wash, then use isopropyl alcohol to disinfect both the cyst and a needle. I pop it with the needle. Squeeze NOT ALL but some of the liquid out. I put on a topical steroid cream to keep the caking down somewhat. (The liquid cakes the day after -- it's not a scab, but like a scab) Anyway, this cream is  called DESONIDE cream. It comes with a ton of possible side effects so contact your doctor and listen up about side effects. I have not experienced any however it can have a lot.

 

The needle extraction helps. Also helped A BIT -- blu u therapy with levulan.... but expensive and not that helpful. But it did help.

 

Try also FULLERS EARTH masks. This is a volcanic clay used in industrial oil spills. It is a super-absorbent clay. You can get this at an Indian store also. It is called MULTI MITTI in ayurvedic healing. (The only place I could find it is in our "Little India" I.e. Indian part of the city.

 

Soaking my skin in a combo of fairly hot water, baking soda, epson salts and sea salts helps a bit also. Pat dry :)

 

Does anyone know what on earth these are? I have no staph, no infection, no rosacea, no rheumatoid illness... no doctor can tell me what this is. It is not folliculitus or acne. It is not sebaceous hyperplasia. It is not follicular spongiosis. It MAY BE a type of pustular atopic dermatitis -- but they cannot help me with it. Nada! Nothing! It's 2013!!! I have been to the Cleveland Clinic -- some of the best dermatologists in the world -- no one know what these are. If anyone does I'd love to know. BTW I believe the liquid is called serous. 

 

Best, of luck,

 

I guess even if we feel really badly we are not alone :(

 

The Neem and needle extractions are making a difference for me. Be warned: If you have staph and do this you can get into some serious trouble. So see a derm first and don't spread an infection around. If you do extract -- safety first! Wash, sterilize, wash. 

 

Best,

Please send me a pm if you would like to discuss this problem. I suffer from these myself and I have a few theories.

Sounds like a deep cyst in its early stages. When you press, lymph fluid (which carries white blood cells, intended to fight infection) comes out. If you left it alone long enough, some sebum might collect, but because it's so deep, it can never make it to the surface (rather it might get reabsorbed by your body).The cause is probably a sebaceous gland gone haywire. I get these around my period all the time. Some eventually fill with a bit of sebum, others don't seem to. At the moment, I have four scabs from these.

New sufferer of these clear fluid filled lumps on face and back of thighs here, lol... I have been getting these horrible things for about 15 years now and I have never found a thing that helps... I am afraid that I am a "picker" which makes them 1000 times worse... I have been reading this thread and think I will try the sulfur treatment, it sure can't hurt as I have tried so many other things without success... I guess I am here for support as much as anything, you all will know just how disfiguring these things are and how they affect one's sense of wellbeing and self esteem... Thanks for reading this, I will pop back from time to time to catch up...

Saw my Dr today and he believes that my skin condition is caused by the many, many medications I take for heart failure and pulmonary fibrosis (plus several other medical conditions)... He said my skin is very fragile from these medications (quite possibly conflicting with each other) so I am getting an extreme inflammatory reaction whenever I try to squeeze or pick those fluid lumps or even the tiniest of blackheads or whiteheads... His advice is to a) keep my fingernails very short and clean all the time b) sit on my hands when watching tv or just sitting doing nothing c) apply a cold pack to control itching and inflammation and d) keep my skin moisturised because dry skin can cause itching... So we will see how this all goes and I will report back with any results, lol...

Acne rosacea or ''adult'' acne is red bumps that don't come to a head and a clear liquidy stuff can be expressed by squeezing. If you aggressively squeeze the cysts you can aggravate them and cause infection that needs to be treated with prescription antibiotics.

 

I get these all the time and it is by far the worst acne I have ever experienced. I've treated my facial issues with birth control and once you find the right one it is a life saver.

 

Hormonal imbalances are likely the cause for these break outs.

I get these all the time, always around my chin and I tried all sorts,then I gave sudocrem a try and at first I thought as its quite oily I thought id break out even more,I didn't just slap it on but I dabbed it on and it wasn't a thick layer either,I left it on overnight and in the morning the pain had almost gone and the redness and swelling had really gone down. This is the only thing that I've found has helped me,I wont be squeezing them again,that's for sure.

Hello all. I realize this is an older post but as it still pops up i thought i would reply. This type if "deep" acne is indeed just that. There is one primary prevention practice that i know seems to work best and that is to wash your pillowcase! It may seem you do, but generally speaking...if you dont wash your hair often...or go to bed after you sweat a lot...your pillowcase will get very dirty very quickly. This grease will infect your face if youre a stomach sleeper...and the neckline below your hair if youre a back sleeper. They are too deep to eliminate once you have them...but by not sharing a pillow with a partner that doesnt wash their hair often...and by washing your hair before bed or keeping your pillowcase clean...this has pretty much eliminated the issue. Think about your hygiene and laundry habits and maybe this will help.

I know it might sound randome but, the cream I use for this (sorry can't remember the name of it) Is one that is used mainly for splinters, as it softens the skin and draws out the foreign object as well as any fluid from that area being infection or natural Body fluid made to help with the exit of the splinterThere are a few type I would say but in general they would all do the same thing. In the case of the red hard sore bump I put a generous amount onto a bandaid and stick it onto that spot when i sleep. This way, all that unwanted swelling is gone because it was drawing it out over the night, and if there is a head to eventually pop up, the skin has been softened to encourage this faster

I was actually able to pop a few of these! I was taking a shower and picking at it, and i got so angry about it that i grabbed by pocket knife from my room and i cut the stupid thing open! As soon as i did it i realized it was a huge mistake. But after about 30 seconds of getting blood all over the inside of my shower, i used my finger nails to  apply pressure around the bloody hole on my chin. A large chunk of hard white stuff came out along with a lot more blood.  This was about 10 hours ago. No more pain, small scab, no leaky fluids. I dont recommend doing this though.

Kezdog- Ithink you are talking about PRID Salve. I've actually used this on the one really bad one that is so deep and wont go away. Well, after I stabbed it with a needle so whatever I put on it could get down in there bc of how deep it is, but it really didn't do much for me. When it would flare up and feel like a huge pimple with no head on it and I AM A PICKER.....I hate it, but love it at the same time. I would squeeze until my arms killed me and eventually the clear oily liquid would shoot out on the mirror. But only to have it go down a little on the swelling then I'd wipe it and it would scab up the next day, but still feel like there's something in there. So, nothing works for me and now it seems like these are the only type of pimples I get. None that pop out no puss, only that oil. So I've got to try that Doxycycline and that retinol A combo and I'm going to try a few of these diff things I've seen on here and hope this works. But no one think your gross as me and my gfs, we all like to pop pimples and have stuff shoot out of them. GROSS! All of us would take turns popping areas for each other we couldn't reach ourselves. But now, I let my aniexty take over and am now a picker with a medical term, there's a really long name for it and It makes me feel horrible. I would like a support group for this. But I just make my face look SO BAD FOR A WHILE NOW. I am on a methadone dose of a 100mg and I think it adds to me breaking out with more bad spots. I think a lot of our problems may be due to meds with side effects. But picking is not the answer I'm told, and I'm going to really try when I pick up this med and I am going to bookmark this and update any progress. Thank you- Bewilly69

I have had this problem alot. Always on my chin. Tried lots of different creams an what not but none of them seemed to work. The i tried drawing save. Got it at Wal-Mart. Lil Orange box called "PRIDE" was like 3$ and after using it for two days with bandaid it finally came to a head. I then squeezed it and lots of yellowish puss came out an next day was almost completely gone. This worked for me, hope it works for you to.

I never had pimples as a kid...perfect skin....I am 63 now, and for the past 20 years of so, I have had periodic outcroppings of hard lumps underneath the skin in my chin area....They begin to feel tight and slightly annoying ..so I squeeze the lump between my fingers till the skin tears and claer licquid oozes out....I do it over and over till they feel depleted of liquid. The liquid returns (usually in the early evening)..I repeat the squeezing process..for a few days till the lump gives up, and I win for the moment...I end up with a few scabbed over lesions, but they heal quickly and I cover them with calomine lotion, as a concealer. My face goes back to normal..till a few months go by and they may reappear....(usually in the exact same spots)..The clear fluid sometimes seems to be never ending..but I can't stand the tightness under my skin.....I would rather tear the skin off than feel the tightness...

I believe it is called sebacious fluid, or sebum...It may be caused from a diet too rich in sugars, as mine is .I don't recommend my "szueese em till they give up" method...but I can't stand to leave them alone...which would  avoid the skin breakage and they might even go away on their own..but I'll never know, because I am too intollerant of any skin imperfections.

Mysterious liquid lunps...with no name...You baffle us.

Hello everyone

After not having these bizarre spots for 3 years, I wake up with one huge mountain on my chest.

I used to get them on the right side of my chin and it would swell to three or four times its size. My school was concerned and thought I had been beaten up. They just sit there and ooze, I'm from England, and have tried everything over the years to illuminate these and nothing has ever worked or even touched them. I first thought it was some sort of ingrown hair, as I had just started to shave.

I thought I had said goodbye to these types of horrible spots. They are so painful and I have no idea what to do about them. I've tried leaving them, poping them, lancing them, creams, gells, pills, pins, you name it. I'm so scared that they will reappear on my face, I can't go through that shattering confidence blow again. Feeling so ugly. This new one on my chest is so sore and tight I cannot even put a shirt on. The pain of doing so is just too exquisite.

Is there still no name for this petulant pimple!

Hello Everybody! I have been there with these same skin problems that you are describing and I was very frustrated for a long time because I couldn't get to the root of the issue! The answer is simple: Food intolerances and food allergies, but the solution requires an entire lifestyle change! Unfortunately these days, there is a lot of GMO products and other chemicals in food or used to process food. Your skin and intestinal tract are the largest parts of your immune system and are responsible for clearing out toxins...part of which manifests as acne. You may or may not have a myriad of symptoms to include low energy, skin acne, skin tenderness, mood swings, stomach aches, headaches, asthma, rancid stool/gas, over/under weight, and bloating to name a few but everyone's body varies. The easiest but most expensive route is to go to an ALLERGY SPECIALIST (NOT YOUR REGULAR DOCTOR as they will deter you from getting tested and try to treat the symptom rather than try to find the root of the cause) and get tested for allergies...you could even do the allergy shot regime which is pretty spendy as well. REMEMBER...NO MATTER HOW INTOLERANT/ALLERGIC YOU ARE, YOU ARE STILL ALLERGIC AND WILL HAVE SYMPTOMS AND MAKE THE PROBLEM WORSE (MORE ALLERGIC) IF YOU CONTINUE TO CONSUME THAT ALLERGEN. The doctor may tell you that all you need is the shots, but that in the end, puts more money into their pocket and isn't the fastest route to recovery. The free and more difficult route which may require a little bit of coaching from me is to eliminate ALL of the things listed in Step 1 and 2, and slowly re-introduce them one at a time to figure out what you are intolerant to (with the exception of the things you should never consume because they are POISON. So:

STEP 1: Find your food intolerances/allergies...I would test for the following ABSOLUTELY:
Wheat, Corn, Soy, Peanuts, Milk, sugar, caffeine, coffee (if you drink it), Other nuts you might consume regularly, coconut, apple, carrots, shellfish...these are the most common allergens and unfortunately are contained in almost EVERYTHING.

STEP 2: Learn how to cook and eliminate your allergies from your diet. I would also eliminate most food chemicals and GMO and non-organic tobacco with additives. This will include ingredients like: xantham gum, modified food starch, dextrose, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, maltodextrin, citric acid, and corn starch (all of these are made from GMO corn); Soy lecithan, soy flour, soy sauce, soy oil, edemame, whey protein is often made with soy, soy candles, soy is also in hygeine products, (all of these are soy products); sodium nitrate, pesticides, monosodium glutemate, sodium laurelth sulfate, aspartame, sucralose, flouride (general chemicals that are no good). You may be wondering what you CAN eat if not these things...feel free to message me and I can send you a list of delicious brands and other substitute tricks! It is really all about knowing where your food comes from, getting from as close to the sources as possible, and cooking it yourself. The more strict you are on your diet, the better.

STEP 3: Go buy Vitamin Code Vitamins and their Calcium. Also, Go Buy Vitamin Code PROBIOTIC capsules! This is VERY important! Your intestine's villi and good gut bacteria have been killed and are unhealthy due to the repetitive allergen exposure! You must repair them! Feed them with these probiotics at least once a day. You may also want to work kombucha tea into your diet (which can be made cheaply at home or bought in the store)...if you ARE NOT ALLERGIC TO SUGAR, as kombucha has a lot of sugar in it.

There you have it...3 not so easy steps. But the good news it, if you successfully eliminate ALL of your allergens from your diet, you WILL HAVE CLEAR SKIN WITHIN 2 WEEKS IF NOT LESS! It isn't very easy and requires a lot of adaptation because a lot of the above mentioned things that are put in food are very addictive...and we generally tend to be addicted to the things we are allergic to. The next thing you may ask yourself is: Why are the most common allergens the most common ingredients in food? Maybe their is a vast conspiracy going on, or maybe people don't care enough to research...regardless, don't be the victim. Take control of your health and life. I was allergic to everything I mentioned above with the exception of caffeine, shellfish and I don't smoke tobacco...I can now eat organic non-GMO corn, wheat, apples, coconut, carrots, and nuts! I will NEVER EAT SOY, or PROCESSED CORN PRODUCTS because they ARE BAD FOR EVERYBODY! Good luck! And don't hesitate to message me with any questions or comments! One more tip: Pop 2 Benedryl before bed and it should bring down the swelling, but if you keep consuming the allergen, it's pointless.

With Love,
Nichole

I know this post is really old but I suffered from the same thing for about 10 years. I am 24 now and just went to the doctor to examine a horribly painful one. He told me it is a carbuncle caused by a mild staph infection. They are contagious and can spread to other areas and sometimes even other people. He prescribed me a heavy dose of antibiotics for 5 day. I can update if anyone is interested. Just waiting for my prescription now. I hope I can help someone else with this problem.
