how big are they? Are they right at the surface of your skin, or do they seem like they are deeper underneath the surface?

They might be small cysts or nodules if they are deeper under the skin, I only get a couple of these a year, but they are a pain in the ass, as they take awhile to go away. But, if they are mostly above the skin's surface, they could be papules - those don't have a head on them either.

If it's a cyst the ony thing that seems to actually do something for me is a giant glob of BP left on overnight. Not rubbed in even, just layered over, let dry - got to sleep. Sometimes they disappear in a few days. Dan's or other 2.5% BP. I thank Mishy for this trick.

They sound like papules to me. Ice and benzoyl peroxide would still both be helpful for these as well.
