Help me identify this type of acne

Recommended Posts

Hello, I've had a few spots on the right side of my jawline for the past month. They are different from the cysts and whiteheads I was getting earlier this year. These ones, they are pretty much flat, totally painless, and appear to have pus under the skin. The pus (if it is pus) has not surfaced for any one of these spots. I say it could be pus only because the spot has a white colour under the skin. If it is pus, should I help them along by gently squeezing to see if the pus will surface? It's been a month and these things are just there.

Sorry, no picture right now (I'll see if I can get one tomorrow).

Sounds like festering cysts. I've got a couple of those, too. Sometimes they'll get absorbed without ever coming to a head. Whatever you do, DO NOT squeeze them. Doing that will definitely rupture them underthe skin, not out, and make it worse.
