please help me figure what kind of acne this is

Recommended Posts

Guys,

I was hoping someone could please tell me what this is....

I get them randomly and only on my cheeks and chin. Description- verry slight bump...barely noticeable and it's pretty black (and i don't think it is a blackhead cause i have plenty of those on my nose)....then MONTHS later it becomes a whitehead but still has that black tip on the whitehead (pretty gross i know!)...but then it's at its ending cycle of being on my face (finally). And if you know what this is, is there any preventive methods? thank you so much for your help-it's been years since i've wanted to know!

I don't know if i'm picturing your description accurately. At first, i thought you were describing MRSA, but that's probably not it. Have any pictures?

I actually have a couple right now, but probably would not be so visible on a picture. I will try soon though. Wow, what is MRSA?, kinda scared now....btw, thanks for your response

Oh, i didn't mean to scare you. I only thought you were describing MRSA at first because you mentioned some black tip. But, by reading the rest of your description, i'm pretty sure it's not MRSA (especially if it's not visible). It's probably something benign and not so serious.
