small but PAINFUL pimple

Recommended Posts

has anyone ever had a tiiiny pimple under the skin that caused a bruised like feeling?

ive had a relatively flat but painful red spot on my chin for a few days now. just a bit ago, a tinnnyy bit of pus came out. it's not painful anymore, but i dont know how such a small bump could have caused that redness and pain.

any similar stories?

Thats's probably a cyst but don't worry a lot of people get them. The important thing is to not try to pop them since that may lead to scarring. It doesn't create a huge bump or form a head but you can definitely feel that sucker. But some BP on it and leave it as is since picking at it = more swelling. You can read more about them on the about acne info pages.

Hope it gets better! :)

i get a lot of pustules that when you rub over them, they hurt (i.e. applying benzoyl peroxide over them) Is this normal?
