Are those spots soft (and could, if you were desparate) be popped? If so, just looks like acne to me.

Or are they hard, and cannot be popped? I have a small (2mm?) hard white bump under one of my eyes-- I have no idea what it is- it does not look or act like acne, and has been there a few months. I have just been ignoring it.

yeah i think these things are like a hard "milia". it's almost like the zit but the filling is a hardened fatty deposit. you can't pop those ones under the eye for some reason they don't go away. i don't know about the other ones though. i've had some and i popped them. some came out swift and clean with no juice to it at all. just a hard ball. it's weird. i don't get them that often though. sometimes i feel like there are some under my skin and i can't get to them so....oh well. :cry:

I get these things all over my shoulders and shoulderblades. I keep thinking they're pimples, but they're hard, and can't be popped.

hmm.. I thought everyone have these close under their nose and bottom lip and inbetween the eyes... I have them but couldnt be seen under normal circumstances unless the skin is stretch or pull (like making a funny face? :X )

Anyone have them at where I had mentioned? :?

I think Diana is right. It might just be fatty deposits. If it feels hard and isnt sensitive when you touch it its probably not acne. I had two of those on my eye lid and my gf picked them out with a needle. A hard white thing comes out, no fluids and no blood like acne. Its not a big deal unless you have a lot of them I guess... My gf said you should take them out while ur still young cause they get worse once you get older. Iunno, they never seem to go away unless you pick them out. I had them for years until she picked them out.

For anyone that mentioned tiny bumps under the eye, my aunt works for an opthamologist and I remember a long time ago when my brother got some of those all he had to do was hold a wash cloth with warm water on it and they eventually went away after a while. I dont remember exaclty how many days it took or anything though.

peters: the hard white thing looked like a little ball, its really really tiny, if its any bigger and if it feels soft than its probably acne not fatty deposits
