This Thing On My Face Is Going To End Up Eating Me Alive! Help!



So I'm not sure how to explain so I'm just gonna for it.

About a year ago, maybe a longer...a pimple (or so I thought, I'm pretty sure its an alien) formed on the side of my nose. Unfortunately I have a really bad habit of not leaving my face/acne alone. I'm 21 and still cant help but pick at my face. But hey, I'm working on it. Anyway, I did pretty good at leaving it alone. But no matter what it kept growing. Fortunately it's been the same size for a long time now but its still VERY noticeable and I'm tired of it. Like I said, thought it was a pimple but it transformed into pretty much a crater. NOTHING has EVER came out of it except blood, lots of it. No puss, just blood and it scabs over thats about it. It's gross, I know...and I'm sorry. But if anyone has experienced this or knows what it is/could be. HELP. I'm begging. And I have gone to the doctor, working on getting to a dermatologist. All the doc told me was they werent sure b/c of how much it was scabbed over. 'thanks sooo much'

It might be a cyst because whenever I get them and pick them no pus ever comes out just blood. Does it feel like a hard bump under your skin? For now I would put vasaline or aquaphot on it every night so the scab will heal. I had one like this on my chin and it took forever to go away until I let it heal and stopes picking it. Then it took months for it to go away on its own. Also a dermatologist can remove it or inject it without it being healed and when it goes away it will probably scar unless you're lucky! I hope this helped! I'm not completely sure but that's just what I think it is!

So you've had this for over a year? Maybe everyone is different but I've never had a zit for that long... not even for a month. I would maybe speak to a dermatologist, that seems like an awful long time to have one! It would be driving me crazy as well!
