Painful spot with no head

Recommended Posts

I got in the shower yesterday morning and noticed a small lump on my chest, I put it down to a spot at first, until I tried to pop it (I know you’re not meant to but it’s hard), and nothing came out, no pus and there’s not even a head. It’s quite firm and about a cm in size. I’ve read about blind pimples but I’ve also read they’re not common on the chest so I’m quite confused. It’s painful to touch, and is also throbbing slightly, but I’ve put the throbbing down to trying to pop it or bring it to a head all morning. I’ve put benzoyl peroxide on, is there anything else I can do? It’s not even noticable, just a bit red. I’m just worried it’s something else.

It sounds like it could be a nodule

If you're concerned it might be something else, you can see a dermatologist.
