That actually doesn't look acne related - I could be wrong, though. Could be a cyst.

I would leave it alone - that looks serious!

leave it alone. Maybe call the Derm and say it is an emergency. Sometimes they can fit you in for a quick appointment. Maybe he will inject it with cortisone but it's tough to tell what that thing is.

Is near your eye hun. I think it will be dangerous if you do a surgery on yourself. It's best for the dermatologist to take a look and help you.

^^^^^^

Agree with the above.

I'm sure that thing is driving you crazy, but please, DO NOT touch or pick or pop or lance it--not with your fingers, not with a needle, not under any circumstances. It's really best that a doctor take a look, and as Ariventa says, maybe you can call the derm's office and say it's an emergency (which it sort of looks like it is)...

Good luck.

I think I did that once when I had a horrible rash all over my face. The dermatologist help me alot and they didn't charge me for that appointment visit. So, I was happy.

ok well not to try to go against everyones advice but im pretty sure I've gotten that before. It's just an infected pimple with spoiled blood in it. If it feels kinda squishy then ye I got that before. All I did was open it up with tweesers and let all the purplish blood ooze out of it, theres not actually a whitehead or anything in it its just a sac of spoiled blood. After i drained it I just let let it heal and it scabbed up and flaked off a few days later. It didnt leave a mark or anything, its actually not as bad as it looks wasnt even painful.

No surprisingly it doesn't, trust me it feels scary when u look at it but its nowhere near as bad as it looks and it doesnt hurt. Its just a sac of blood as soon as u open it it all leaks out. Just make sure u get all of it out and wash it with hot water afterwards. Then itll eventually dry up into a red scab and it should flake off in 3-4 days. I thought I was the only one who ever got this, well let me know how it goes.

Because of the proximity to your eye and tear ducts I WOULD NOT open that thing at all. I think you would be asking for trouble. I am a terrible picker and I've had to basically sit on my hands for things like that, but in this instance it would be necessary. You don't want to get an eye infection or anything. It may not be infected because of the lack of pain or swelling, but you need a doctor to tell you that (and to remove it).

Good luck.

Be patient.

its really weird coz i've got one almost exactly the same!! i got mine about 2weeks ago but the last few days its gotten really big. at the same place as you and everything but not as red but its the same size if not even bigger, i went to the doctor today but she was afraid to do anything coz its so close to my eye so she will send me to a specialist this week to remove it. but she said if it gets red or hurts or something before the appointment i have to come back anyway and she will do it ASAP coz an infection can easily lead to blood-poisening when its close to alot of big and importent blood vessels that leads directly to the brain. :ninja: i'm on tetracykline at the moment so that should hinder the infection a bit though...

so you should definatly go to a doctor as soon as you can!! it can actually get really dangerous...

good luck!!

P.S do NOT try to do anything with it yourself! i repeat do NOT! go to a proffessional!! D.S
