Hard, white, painless acne lumps after a cyst has gone

Recommended Posts

Can anybody help.... Ive been getting facial acne cysts, very big and after they disapear and the pus or liquid drains away or pops im left with a hard, skin coloured lump/bump which wont go away and wont get smaller or may take months even years to shrink.... what is this? What is it filled with and more importantly what can i do to get rid of the lump. Its painless, very hard and skin coloured but nothing seems to work... any help would be wonderful

they take months or years to shrink because you haven't drained the pus when they are fresh and active

I would occasionally get those too.  Its just the results of inflammation. Similar to scar nodule, but mine always went away. It would take forever though..months. dont touch them, sometimes aha or retin a can help speed along.
