Hey guys and girls,

My face used to be so filled with pimples I would be unable to tell between a cyst and pustule a papule a comedone a blackhead etc... and I've recently started to get clear.

I have this new bump forming on my cheek. It's just a slight elevation - it is not inflamed: it ain't red, it ain't painful. Even when I use my fingertips to poke it a bit, it's not the slightest bit sore. It also isn't old, just noticed it last night. Is it acne?

Normally when I put glycolic acid on a pimple it will sting for a couple of seconds, but when I put it on this spot, there isn't even a tingle!

Input please!! :)

Take care!

Could be a closed comedone, but I can't be sure.

Don't pick it or poke it. If glycolic acid normally works for you, use that. Otherwise, leave it alone ... maybe it'll go away.
