Hi all. I am new to the forums, so hello! I, like many, if not all of you have suffered from acne. However, this post is about a rather slightly different topic. Any help of any sort will be much appreciated!
For about a year, there has been a little what seemed like a blackhead trapped underneath my epidermis. I think it resulted from a full blown pimple that I avoided touching, but I can't quite remember since it has been so long. It has been sort of a hard bump on my cheek that for some reason up until today, I just could not get rid of. I would try to squeeze it but that hurt. I would pick at it but it was under my skin so that didn't help. Lately, I've just been picking and picking at it and finally tonight I successfully extracted it. To my surprise (and I'm sorry if this next part is a bit T.M.I) it was a hard white like "thing" (almost like a dried up pus of some sort).
I was so happy to have gotten it out although I wish I knew what it was so I could avoid it in the future, but I was stricken with yet another problem....the hole that the white substance was in. :/ I now have a hole from where the dried up "pus" sat and I don't know what to do. I really hope it doesn't scar and if any of you have any advice or tips, I would be so grateful.
