Is This Cyst, Nodules Or Neither? Help!

Help!

I've had these for more than 15 years... I am 34 right now and these things started showing up when I was in college, and they have increased in number over time. I've seen dermatologists before about this, but they just told me that it's a type of acne and didn't explain to me how they come about, and gave me washes and topicals that didn't work. I really want to find out what they are and then get rid of them. Can someone tell me about them?

Please help me to get rid of them. They really hurt my self esteem and I can't take off my shirt in front of anyone...

Recently a dermatologist suggested to use Accutane, but it seems to have a lot of side effects and I am scared to use it. Is there anything other treatment for this that is more holistic?

Thank you!

It looks like an allergic reaction to something. I'd check with a few more dermatologists for some other opinions. Definitely doesn't look like something accutane should be used for.

ok. Let me seek a few more dermatologists. I myself have acne on the back and my face also but they don't look like these. These things don't go away at all... and the bump gets bigger slowly over time. If you look at it carefully under the bump seems kind of dark, so I wonder what these are. I've popped a few over the years, not to mention that it hurt like hell it also leaves huge scars. If anyone has any clues I would be very much appreciated
