Closed comedone? Cyst? What is that?

Hello all!

I’m a little puzzled.. Since August I’ve had this bump/thing on my face, and I cannot seem to get rid of it. I’ve been to multiple derms, had extractions, but it’s still there! My latest visit to the derm ended with her telling me it’s a closed comedone, and to have it extracted, after which I visited a salon and did, however, it’s still there! I’ at my wits end with this, and would love input from someone who’s maybe had the same thing, and how did you get rid of it?

I use differin on it every night (since August) and Finacea in the morning. I have also used tret (Ketrel, 0.025) from time to time. It feels like tret might be pushing it more towards the surface, but I can’t even tell anymore to be honest.

I’d really appreciate any input.
