When I was about ten or eleven, I experienced one of my first and worst pimples. It was right in the top center of my chin (right where it curves into the skin before your bottom lip) and I picked the heck out of it when I was a kid. It lasted for maybe a month - I picked nonstop and it was always very red and irritated, and I always removed the scab. Well, now I'm twenty and for as long as I can remember since I had that pimple, I've had a very raised bump in the same place where the pimple was. My assumption is it is either a scar or cyst, although I can't find any pictures that resemble it. It is the same color as my skin, and it only turns red if I've put pressure on it (I've tried to pop it only twice for as long as I can remember. For the most part, I leave it alone.) Also, I'm not sure if it is advised to do this here, but I use hydrogen peroxide to try to kill any bacteria in my acne, and I've noticed the few times recently that I put it on this bump after I had opened it a bit to try and pop it, it reacted a lot (bubbling and white).
I just hate when I take a really nice photo or something and that bump ruins my image. I've been feeling more and more self-conscious about it lately and I'd love to know what it is. At the time I can't visit a dermatologist or other doctor to have it identified, but I imagine it's nothing important because nobody had said anything about it before.
I can try to provide pictures if it will help someone identify it.
